Spartans For Spartans

The words “Spartans for Spartans” would make Sister Patricia Flarity very proud.

As Principal of DePaul for 35 years, 1965-2000, Sister Pat identified DePaul as her home and the students as her children. Sister was proud and protective of each and every Spartan. Sister worried about her students and realized that hard times, for some, were going to happen. When hard times hit some families, Sister Pat quietly, without fanfare, came to the assistance of those students and families in crisis.

DePaul Catholic continues that “tradition of help” to this day. Today we call it: “Spartans for Spartans”.

“Spartans for Spartans” is a unique fund dedicated solely to assisting current Spartans in crisis. It is funded by you, the Spartans of the past and present, many of you who remember Sister Pat or those of you who are just proud to say, I am a DePaul Grad.

Your generosity will help to build a bridge for a family, in temporary crisis, to continue to receive a DePaul Education. The same education you were fortunate to receive.

You can be assured that your generosity is appreciated and needed. The challenges facing all of us have hit some “Spartans” extra hard through illness and or job loss. Sometimes a little help can go a long way in helping a “fellow Spartan” in temporary need.

Thank you for being part of DePaul’s history, DePaul’s legacy. As Sister Jeanne says, we must stay together and follow Sister’s example by caring for one another all the time.
