During the month of May, as Mount St. Mary Academy celebrates the gift of the past school year, the oldest ministry in the former St. Louis Region will be celebrating with hearts of gratitude another time of special importance.
To honor the Mercy legacy at the school, Mercy Moments on Our Journey will be held at Mount St. Mary Convent on Sunday, May 7th from 4 to 6 p.m. with comments at 5 p.m. Light refreshments, libations and tea will be provided.
Two Sisters in residence at the school, Sister Mary Ann Hardcastle and Sister Mary Jolitta Konecny, will be recognized in light of their significance. Both are graduates and former members of the faculty who have reached the graceful wisdom of 80 years this March. Due to multiple circumstances for community and ministry, the Sisters will be relocating to Catherine McAuley Convent in Barling, Arkansas. The South Central Leadership Team has communicated their wish to deed the Mount St. Mary Convent residence to the ministry leadership at Mount St. Mary Academy.
As with all Mercy experiences, Mount St. Mary is blessed to continue to have the presence and ministry of Sister Joan Pfauser bringing the daily gift of Mercy presence as a school counselor. The school is also privileged to have six Sisters of Mercy actively serving on the Academy and Foundation boards.
With deep thanksgiving to God for His faithfulness and for the courage of those who have helped bring Mount St. Mary to this point, all who have been a part of her history are invited to celebrate these Mercy Moments on Our Journey. Guests attending should RSVP to Shannon Tanner at 501.476.3367 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first-ever March Madness Father-Daughter Family Feud event created quite a stir in the McAuley Center on Saturday, March 4th at Mount St. Mary Academy. Presented by the Belle Booster Club, the event benefited Mount St. Mary student clubs, organizations and athletic teams. Following rules of the popular game show, teams of dads and daughters faced off to answer popular survey questions and try for their chance to enter the final round.
Congratulations to the Clark/Wahlgreen/Crow team, winner of this year’s March Madness Family Feud! And thank you to the extremely creative and hardworking event chairs, MSM parents Kelly and Roy Snook, and the student committee for all of their vision and planning for this event.
