On Sunday, October 26th, we hosted 50-year and 25-year alumni from the classes of 1964 and 1989 for a reunion Mass and luncheon on campus. Former roommates Maria Moore Kelly and Janine Azzarano Mohan both graduates of the School of Nursing, reminisced about their student-days, while also sharing their stories with a few of our currently enrolled students.
I am grateful to so many of our alumni who offer to share their expertise and experiences with our students. Special thanks to all who participate on panels, advisory boards, career services programs, mentorships, internships and so much more. We are blessed by your ongoing involvement with your Alma Mater and our students.
Our alumna from the Class of ’64 had so many wonderful memories to share with me, including their recollections of the many Sisters of Mercy who were involved in their education and influenced their lives, e.g., Sister Denise, Sister Fenton Joseph, Sister Mary Paul, Sister Elizabeth Marie, Sister Consuelo, Sister Kevin Mary, Sister Gregory, Sister Norbert, Sister John Aloysius, and Sister Cecelia. While there are fewer Sisters on campus these days, the charism and traditions of the Sisters of Mercy are alive and well on our campuses and it the lives of our over 18,000 alumni.
