Marymount Alumnae Chaplain

Dear Marymount Family,

Marymount DirectoryWe certainly have had varying weather this summer—hotter than usual, colder than usual, flooding, etc. I hope all are safe. Also, there is so much upheaval in our world these days. We need to pray for peace.

There is good news on the Marymount front. The alumnae directory is finished and has been sent out to all who ordered one. It is filled with helpful information as well as many more listings of alumnae.

Homecoming 2014Our next event for Marymount alumnae is Homecoming on Sept. 13 at the Rose Hill campus of Fordham. The day will start at 9 a.m. for those interested in the 5K Ram Run. The Homecoming Tent opens on Edwards Parade at 11 a.m. to welcome everyone with free food and soft drinks. Beer and wine are also available for $3. The football game against Rhode Island kicks off at 1 p.m. Last year we had a number of Marymount alumnae who attended and had lots of fun.

Join us this year!

  • Nov. 15: "Spirituality for Today" presented by Catherine Patten, R.S.H.M.
    The annual presentation in honor of Father Gailhac's birthday, beginning at 1 p.m. and closing with Eucharist at 4 p.m. St. Joseph's Hall, 50 Wilson Park Dr., Tarrytown, NY.
  • Dec. 7: Founder's Day followed by the annual Festival of Lessons and Carols
    The annual gathering in Butler Commons, Duane Library, Rose Hill campus, to remember the founding of Marymount College by Mother Marie Joseph Butler. Every year we remember the RSHM LIFE Center by bringing a toy or clothing for the children.

To see what is planned in your area, visit the alumni events page.

We look forward to seeing you at Homecoming, Founder's Day, and at many of the other events. The Marymount Alumnae Board wants to hear from you, so please share your ideas with Jane Bartnett, Board President, at janebartnett@yahoo.com.

Peace,
