Our Lady Help of Christians School

A Citadel of Hope

Sr. Patricia M. Hogan is a Caldwell Dominican Sister of 54 years and currently in her 38th year as Principal of Our Lady Help of Christians.

Sr. Patricia attended Villanova University and has a MA in Administration/Supervision. She began her career teaching at St. Aedan's in Jersey City. She then went on to teach at St. Ann's in Newark and a few years later became Principal there for 6 years. Since then Sr. Patricia has been Principal here at OLHC. She has been active on Boards, Deanery, Chairperson in the Diocese, and continues to be active in Church and Community Organizations. Our Principal, Sr. Patricia's hopes and dreams for the school are that it remains primarily a deeply religious school based on the teachings of Jesus, as well as a school with great values, academic achievement, and respect for all cultures and creeds. 

She hopes that we will continue to be a Citadel of Hope in the city of East Orange.
