Circle of Mercy Luncheon

The annual Circle of Mercy Luncheon brings together alumnae who graduated from the Academy 50 or more years ago. It is one of our most well attended events and a wonderful opportunity to visit with classmates and other Mercy Women who shared school days together at Broad Street and in Gwynedd Valley.

Where: Blue Bell Country Club

When: Friday, October 21, 2022, 11AM

Who: Classes of 1972 and prior graduating classes.

Note: Be sure to wear your Vineyard Vines scarf to the event! Convenient, free valet parking will be available.

Accommodations: A block of hotel rooms has been reserved for Friday and Saturday nights at Residence Inn Philadelphia Montgomeryville. Reservations should be made by September 21, 2022. Guests can secure a room by calling (267) 468-0111 and mentioning group code ‘GHS’ or by booking online.

Support Strawberry Market: The Alumnae Association, in partnership with Alison McGrorty-Crotts, M.D. ’04, supports Strawberry Market, a food and necessities pantry for the patients of Strawberry Mansion Health Center in North Philadelphia. The Gwynedd community is the exclusive provider for the market, so we are asking for each Circle of Mercy Luncheon and Reunion attendee to bring a donation to help keep it fully stocked! Donation boxes will be placed at the entrance of the event. Learn more and shop the wish list here.
