We should be shining lamps, giving light to all around us.”

— Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy


The Mercy values modeled by Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy have inspired compassion, courage, faith and drive among women at Mount St. Mary Academy for more than 170 years. This year’s Mercy & Me luncheon will continue the tradition of celebrating Mercy-inspired leadership and honoring its impact in our school, our homes, and our community.

Event Details


We are thrilled to welcome bestselling author and popular podcaster Kari Kampakis as our Mercy & Me keynote speaker. Leaning on her Christian faith and personal experience as a mom to four daughters, Kari is nationally renowned for offering practical advice, loving support, and insightful discussions on modern-day issues for parents and young girls across the country. Her heartwarming talk, A Call to Mercy: Be a Light in a Post-Christian World, is sure to reignite attendees’ commitment to serve as shining lamps at a time when it’s most needed.


This year’s event will also feature a silent auction (online bidding will open Saturday, April 1) and the presentation of our 2023 Women’s Leadership Award to Lorie White ’92, vice president of operations at L’Oréal.
