Budding Scientist Rooted in Faith
By Eileen Betz Aithanh Nguyen graduated from the Academy of the Holy Family in Baltic, Connecticut on June 4, 2019. When first attending the Academy, Aithanh was not sure whether it was the right place for her to develop into the person God wanted her to be.

The money donated to the ACA is used to help our Diocesan ministries keep their vital works flowing throughou...
