Mercy Mondays: McAuley Institute for Mercy Education announces new speaker series
As part of Mercy Week, the McAuley Institute for Mercy Education is launching the “What Matters to Me and Why?” luncheon series tomorrow on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at noon in Ochre Court’s state dining room. Lunch will be provided and seating is limited, so registration is required. Staff, faculty and students can register by emailing email@example.com.
The “What Matters to Me and Why?” speaker series seeks to provide opportunities for the Salve Regina community to gather around its stories, core values and mission. The series will host one Sister of Mercy, one faculty member, one staff member and one administrator annually to reflect on their lives and vocations, as well as to respond to the question, “What matters to me, and why?”
The first speaker to share their story will be Sister Therese Antone, chancellor of Salve Regina.
Mary Beth Pelletier, program manager of Mission Integration, has known Sister Therese ever since she was a child when Pelletier’s father started teaching at Salve Regina in 1989.
“She was always a supporter of the arts, and I have fond memories of hugs from Sister Therese and Sister Leona when we would see them at choral concerts,” Pelletier described. “When I came to Salve as an undergraduate, she was my president. As a theatre student, I remember Sister Therese seeing every show I was in, and she always sat in the front row in Megley Theatre. Now, it’s my chance to sit in the front row to support her. I look forward to hearing her story and celebrating all that Sister Therese is as a person.”
The “What Matters to Me and Why? Luncheon With Sister Therese Antone” event will be from noon to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, in Ochre Court’s state dining room. Lunch will be provided and seating is limited, so registration is required. To register for the luncheon and for more information on the Luncheon Speaker Series, please contact the McAuley Institute for Mercy Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second speaker within the series will be Rose Albert, associate director of the Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention, on Wednesday, Nov. 17.
