On Tuesday, April 23, Mount St. Mary Academy’s senior class visited the Carmel of St. Teresa of Jesus in Little Rock. After celebrating mass together in the monastery’s chapel, the group enjoyed visiting with the Carmelite nuns. The students learned more about the history of the Carmelites as well as their daily life, and they were given the opportunity to ask questions of the small community of sisters.
The trip has become an end-of-the-year tradition for each graduating class of Mount St. Mary Academy and provides the seniors with the last opportunity to celebrate mass together as a class prior to the Baccalaureate Mass in May.
Mount St. Mary Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, develops young women with a moral and intellectual foundation rooted in Catholic tradition. Mercy-minded and college-prepared, our students meet the future with wisdom, compassion and integrity.
