Foundress Day

Brescia’s annual Foundress Day ceremony is a proud celebration of our remarkable past, incredible present, and bold future. 

This time-honoured ceremony celebrates our roots and our remarkable foundresses, the Ursuline Sisters, while welcoming our newest students into our bright future. Alumnae are welcome to attend and welcome our new class to the Brescia family.

Brescia will celebrate Foundress Day on Tuesday, September 6th to honour and draw from our roots and celebrate our incoming students.


Attention Incoming Students:

Be sure to attend to celebrate our roots, to see how they'll help you grow, to sign your name in Brescia's history, and to be part of Foundress Day ceremonies!  You'll also receive your rose and special memorabilia!
