Each year Mount St. Mary welcomes our students’ grandparents on campus to spend time with their grandchild viewing the latest developments in our classrooms and special program areas. This year’s event — originally scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2020 — was canceled due to precautions taken in response to COVID-19 and will not be rescheduled. We will post information about our 2021 event once it has been scheduled.

A biennial dinner and auction held at Mount St. Mary Academy, this event offers a festive evening for the school and alumnae community. We have chosen to postpone this year’s event, originally scheduled for April 18, in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and resulting recommendations by the CDC. Dinner Belles will now be held on Saturday, August 29, 2020. Click here for more details about this year’s event, and to purchase your tickets.

A signature biennial event, the Mercy & Me luncheon celebrates the nine Mercy values and their place in community leadership. The next Mercy & Me luncheon will take place in Spring 2021.
