Chatfield College to Celebrate Re-dedication of Historic St. Angela Hall

September 26th, 2011 Chatfield College to Celebrate Re-dedication of Historic St. Angela Hall

Chatfield College would like to invite the community to celebrate the re-dedication of St. Angela Hall on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be free food, music, and cornhole.

 St. Angela Hall was built in 1861 by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and still stands today as an amazing piece of history.  During the past three centuries, St. Angela Hall has been used as a residence for priests and the Ursuline of Brown County sisters, as well as a dormitory for the Ursuline Boarding School.  Now, St. Angela Hall will begin life anew as the main administration building for Chatfield College, housing the president's office, development and alumni relations office, and the marketing and communications staff.

“For all of Chatfield's 40 years, the Ursulines of Brown County have been there to make sure all of the school's needs are met,” said John P. Tafaro, Chatfield College president.  “In this case, making St. Angela Hall available to the college is a great blessing to us, as we continue to grow and meet the important educational needs of the communities we serve. We are humbled to be part of the Ursuline legacy, and honored to be entrusted with the responsibility of renovating, maintaining, and keeping this historic and treasured building operational and productive for many years to come.”  

The celebration will begin with a welcome reception from 8-9 a.m. hosted by the Chatfield College Alumni Association. The ceremony will also include a blessing at the Ursuline cemetery at 9 a.m. and a re-dedication and blessing of St. Angela Hall at 10 a.m., followed by a ribbon cutting, conducted by members of the Brown County Chamber of Commerce Community Ambassador Program .   Tours of St. Angela Hall, lunch, music, and cornhole will be available from 11 a.m. " 1:30 p.m.

Sponsors of the event include Ohio Valley Flooring, River City Furniture, Duke Energy, Kibbler Lumber, Kent Shaw Interior Design and MSA Architects.  To RSVP, or for more information about the event, call 513-875-3344, ext 126 or email jessica.smith@chatfield.edu.
