SSND Alumnae Gather to Celebrate the Centennial
Following the video screening, the Sisters toured Campus and paid a visit to the Art Department where faculty member Brad Bernard introduced them to the Centennial Mural, a work in progress depicting the college's 100-year history. Several Sisters added their brush strokes to the piece. The completed Centennial Mural will be unveiled at the September 19 Gala. View photos of students and Sisters at work on the Mural.
The Sisters also attended a special luncheon and concluded the day with Mass.
SSND Premier of Stories from our Sisters: A Mount Mary Centennial Treasury
The audience members enjoyed the touching and often humorous stories on the screen. At the conclusion of the movie, Mount Mary College President Eileen Schwalbach presented all twelve participants with their own copies of the film.
The movie was the brainstorm of the college's Centennial Planning Committee which wanted to create a tribute to the Sisters to ensure that their vital roles and stories would be captured for future generations. It was produced by Life Productions, a Milwaukee-based women-owned company and the interviews were shot on the SSND Elm Grove campus last fall. The film was shown again at the June 14 Centennial event for Sisters who were unable to attend the premiere.
Centennial Mass of the Holy Spirit
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.
