Last night, April 11th, the Sisters of the Resurrection honored three  members of the Resurrection College Prep High School staff:  Kathleen Heneghan, Alisa Martorano and Mary Kaye Ulczak.   The celebration was to recognize them upon the completion of the Resurrection Leadership Formation Program. 
All three are alumna of Resurrection, all three have spent most of their adult life working at Resurrection, all three are passionate about Catholic Education and in particular the education of young women in academics and faith.
 Three years ago Kathleen, Alisa and Mary Kaye became the first to embark on a new journey, a Resurrection Leadership Formation Program.  They were brave pioneers who invested hours of time, work, and personal contributions in order to deepen their understanding of, commitment to and leadership role in witnessing and teaching the values, vision and goals of our Resurrection charism, pedagogy and most importantly the Gospel challenge and call to women. 

The Sisters of the Resurrection are privileged and honored to have lay partners like Kathleen, Alisa and Mary Kaye.

Alisa Martorano, Sr. Donna Marie, Mary Kaye Ulczak, and Kathleen Heneghan
