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.

2021 Reunion Health and Safety Protocol

Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases and keeping health and safety as our top priorities, this year’s reunion events, including the Circle of Mercy Luncheon on October 22 and All-Class Reunion on October 23, will require proof of vaccination for all in-person attendees.

Each attendee must upload a photo of her/his vaccination card when registering online or enclose a photocopy when registering by mail. Your vaccination series must be complete by October 9, as you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your final dose. Please submit this proof of vaccination by October 21 to ensure participation in the 2021 in-person reunion.

Additionally, all visitors to campus are required to wear masks inside the building, except when eating and drinking, to help protect our community. Masks are not required to be worn outdoors.
