‘What Matters to Me and Why?’ luncheon speaker series continues for second year
The McAuley Institute for Mercy Education is excited to launch its second year of the “Voices of Mercy: What Matters to Me and Why?” luncheon speaker series on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Noon in the State Dining Room in Ochre Court. Participants can register for all of the events in the series by visiting the Eventbrite page.
The luncheon speaker series will kick off with Sister Betty McAuliffe, RSM and associate professor in the Department of Education, on Oct. 11. The second speaker within the series will be Aïda Neary, director of community educational partnerships, on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at Noon.
Salve Regina’s stories matter. This luncheon speaker series seeks to provide opportunities for the University community to gather and share 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. Each will respond to the question, “What matters to me, and why?”
“‘Voices of Mercy: What Matters to Me and Why?’ offers the University community a glimpse into the interior movements of one’s heart and journey,” said one participant when reflecting back on 2021-22’s luncheon speaker series. “It is a true testament to listening to the small voice of vocation and saying yes to becoming more than one imagines.”
In the spring semester, the University will hear from Dr. John Quinn, professor in the Department of History, on Wednesday, Feb. 8, and Dr. Nancy Schreiber, provost and vice president for academic affairs on Wednesday, March 8.
