      if you had photos from St Stephen's in Monterey Park Id appreciate seeing them. My teachers were wonderful but have all since left for the most part. I was there from 1966-1968.

      @quinnsellars, if the College of the Holy Names nuns (Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary) visited St. Stephen's, it's possible there are photos in our collection. Primarily, though, these photos will be from the Holy Names University archives with photos from the old Lake Merritt campus, as well as the current campus in the Oakland hills built in the 1950s.

      T y for your info. I doubt when inwas at st Stephens anyone was from the college. There was a lot of chaos and travel between Los gatos and the school. Right before my 5 month stint at st Paul the apostle, two sisters close to us came to inform us they were leaving but would go to Los gatos for a little. It beforehand.

      The teachers at st Stephens in Monterey park were ssnjm! They weren't visiting the school they ran it.

      These photos are from Holy Names University Archives not Sisters of the Holy Names Provincial office, contact them if you want to track down a Sister or photo of SNJM's who taught at St Stephens School...
