Centennial Mass of the Holy Spirit
January 31, 2013 -- The Mount Mary College community marked its Centennial on January 31, 2013 with a Mass of the Holy Spirit in the Alumnae Dining Hall. Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki presided and spoke of parallels in his own religious calling and the path of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the College’s sponsors.
He thanked the Mount Mary community for, “expending the generosity of God – taking what you learn here and expending it with others.”
More than 300 guests attended the mass which included a special fire bowl procession by three Mount Mary students, symbolizing a presence of the Holy Spirit. After the mass, Archbishop Listecki greeted guests, including over 70 School Sisters of Notre Dame. Sr. Mary Anne Owens, Provincial Leader of the Central Pacific Province, was also a special guest at the Centennial mass celebration.

Get Into the Picture at Mount Mary College
One hundred Alumnae will join Mount Mary's Art Department in the creation of a unique mosaic image of Mount Mary College in honor of the centennial anniversary. Each artist will use their favorite medium—colored pencil, pastel, printing ink, collage material, oil, acrylic, fiber, etc.—to “color in” the canvas to capture the colors, shapes and textures of a section of a photo of campus. All sections will be assembled into one large image and unveiled in the fall of 2013.
For more information, please contact Deb Heermans, Chair of Mount Mary’s Art Department and class of 1980, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
