In his announcement Mr. Hanemann said: “Traditionally, the Alumna of the Year is surprised at this Mass after we have lured her here under false pretenses.  Because of the professional schedule of this year’s recipient, we had to tell her before hand.  She was no less surprised when I called her and told her of her selection.

Cabrini Katie Berchak IrbyCabrini High School alumna Katie Berchak-Irby’01 completes her PhD program at Louisiana State University by defending her dissertation on “The Body and The Bedroom: Life and Death at the Shrines of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini”. Her dissertation consists of ethnographic and autoethnographic research at the shrines of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini in Washington Heights, New York City, New York and Cabrini High School, New Orleans, Louisiana. She explores what makes shrines sacred for the women who visit them and how they use these shrines to confront life and death. She also highlight the power women have in making of the sacred in shrines associated with the Catholic Church, which is run by an entirely-male hierarchy. The shrines allow for a place where women can exercise power over the sacred on their own terms. This work contributes in the emerging fields of emotional geographies and autoethnography, as well as challenging the traditional ways in which geographers have explored and ignored sacred spaces.
