Dear Fellow Barat College Alums,
The Barat Education Foundation (BEF) at the request of alumni of Barat College (BCAA) has engaged the services of Harris Connect to produce an updated 2016 Barat College Alumni (BCAA) Directory. The last directory was published in 2005. We’ve assembled the information currently in our files, but now need your assistance to confirm the accuracy of your data.
Also, we would very much appreciate your help in spreading the word to fellow Barat College alums so that everyone is included and aware that a new directory will be published in 2016.
Postcards and emails will be sent out during the next few weeks asking you to call Harris Connect directly via a toll free phone number to verify that your contact information is completely accurate and up-to-date.

Last month the Barat Education Foundation board members marked the one year anniversary of fellow board member Sister Sally Furay’s death by reading the following prayer. As a religious of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Sister Furay was known to give generously of her time and wisdom to the various projects that the BEF undertook. In gratitude and in her memory this Lenten season the BEF would like to share the following prayer.
On April 25th, IVC held its annual Evening of Gratitude. The Joan Lueder Coffey Service Award supports an IVC-Sacred Heart alum who volunteers at an organization which promotes educational opportunities for students of limited means.
