Annual Alumnae Memorial Mass


Each year we, the Mount Mercy Academy Alumnae Association, offer a Mass

for our deceased members. We pray for all our deceased by decades and call, by name,

those who have died in the past year.

Please note: We have traditionally offered the Mass in May of each year.

In the year 2020 we are changing the date of the Mass to the month of October.

It is our hope that more members will be able to participate in the Mass.

Spring events such as First Communion, Graduation, Mothers’ Day and o

ther celebrations have hindered the number of alumnae who are able to join us.

Please join us in the fall of 2020.

New dates will be posted on the website and in the Spring 2020 Horizons magazine. 

Please contact Alumnae Relations at alumnaerelations@mtmercy.org for more information.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
