Enraged by the school’s announcement that they would begin publishing same-sex wedding announcements in its alumni magazine, 36-year-old Sonia Tabizada of San Jacinto, California made multiple, threatening calls to the school. Previously, the school is alleged to have denied any requests from alumnae asking to have their same-sex unions announced. In making its announcement, the school of which is the oldest Catholic girls school in America, Sister Mary Berchmans Hannan, head of the school reasoned that, “It is our mission and ministry to understand the value of diversity and respect the dignity of each person. This change is an important part of ensuring that every individual is respected.” After learning of the school’s announcement, on May 15, 2019, in one voicemail left by Tabizada she said that she would burn and bomb the church, and that she was going to kill school officials and students.
