Returning to St. Augustine Catholic School like coming home, new principal says

Sister Emmanuella Ladipo, a Handmaid of the Holy Child Jesus, said returning as the principal of St. Augustine Catholic School in Washington, D.C., for the 2020-21 school year, “is like coming back, from home to home. I’m excited to come back and continue the work.”

During the 2007-08 school year, Sister Emmanuella served as the principal at St. Augustine Catholic School and was succeeded by Sister Gloriamary Agumagu, who led the school since then, until recently being appointed as the superior of the United States mission of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, a religious order of women founded in Nigeria. After serving as principal at St. Augustine, Sister Emmanuella also taught second grade there for one year and then served as the director of religious education at the parish for five years.
