Of all the treasures we can have in life, one is worth more than almost any other. There's a priceless beauty in the faith-filled heart of a daughter. I`m grateful to the Dominican Sisters and the faculty of Rosary for helping to impart in my daughter the wisdom to stay true to God`s voice, to walk in God`s presence and to take her knowledge and talents to be used as a powerful good in the world. I know that God will bless Rosary students as they celebrate the past and welcome the future. He will guide them with hope as they embark upon paths known and unknown, comfortable and challenging. Making your daughter's education at Rosary a priority will benefit her and you for the rest of your lives.Debbi Ellis ,
