Confetti Eggs

It would't be Congé without confetti eggs!  Each year, we sell hundreds and hundreds of dozens of confetti eggs and the remnants "glitter" our campus for weeks!

Congé through the Years

Congé is a French word meaning holiday or permitted leave.  Since the founding of the school, Sacred Heart students have been granted congés, days in which to leave their studies for a day of fun and celebration.  In the 1940s, an annual spring Family Congé began.  The students and the religious invited alumnae, friends, and family to join them on campus for games, food, crafts, and fun.  The tradition has continued over the years, becoming a much-anticipated day of celebration for our entire community.
