Humans of Sacred Heart – Nia Foster '19


How do you feel about getting your Mater Medal?
“When I first received my Mater Medal at the Mother-Daughter Liturgy, I saw the words “ora pro nobis” and had recognized that it was Latin and decided to look it up. It means “pray for us,” which relates to all of us. I felt so in contact with Mater.”
What does Mater mean to you?
“As Mrs. Collins and Mrs. Hayes handed out the medals, I recognized that the female leaders of our school were representing one of the female figures of Catholicism. We all need Mater in our lives because we need strong female figures as young girls of the Sacred Heart to guide us.”
What do you hope to get out of the experience?
“I truly appreciate who Mater is and the impact of leadership that she has in my life. I have always thought of Mater as just “the lady in pink,” but I learned that she is more than that. She is most admirable and it makes me feel safe knowing that I have a figure to always look up to.”
The King Street Chronicle thanks sophomore Nia Foster ’19 for her contributions to “Humans of Sacred Heart.”
