MOUNT MERCY ACADEMYNovember 2010 NewsletterVOLUME 8, ISSUE 76A Message from our PrincipalNovember, 2010Dear Parents and Guardians,Every once in a while I like to dust off my Social Studies teacher hat and try to takean historical perspective in my monthly letter. It becomes increasingly difficult to findfresh and interesting ideas for these monthly letters so I Googled “November” to tryto get some ideas.One of the first things that came up on Google was the Diversity Calendar from theUniversity of Kansas Medical Center. It listed the religious observances for themonth of November. Heading the list for November first was, of course, All Saints’Day which is a celebration for Catholics as well as other Christian denominations.(We will celebrate the Holy Day of Obligation with Mass at St. Thomas AquinasChurch.) Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1 inMexico and Latin America. The Feast of All Saints was listed next and that is a distinctly Roman Catholic celebration based in part because of the Catholic belief inpurgatory. (We will have a prayer service to commemorate all our family and friendswho have passed away.)As I continued down the list of religious celebrations I encountered a few that I wasnot familiar with - - Diwali (Buddhist, Hindu) on November 5, Birthday of Baha'u'llah(Baha'i) on November 12 and Eid al-adha (Islamic, Muslim) on November 16. Theseare very unfamiliar to most of us yet there are many within the United States who willbe celebrating these religious holidays this month. The theme at Mount Mercy thisyear is Reverencing the Dignity Within Each Person – Celebrating Life and respecting the diversity of religious tradition certainly falls under this theme. There is aneed for our students to know, understand and celebrate our Catholic faith, heritageand traditions and it the responsibility of the school and family to make sure thathappens. Beyond that we are obligated to make them aware of the wider world andrespectful of the diversity that we encounter. For example, Eid al-adha of the Feastof Sacrifice is the most important feast in the Muslim calendar. It lasts for threedays and commemorates Abraham’s sacrificing his son. God stops him and thenAbraham sacrifices an animal in his son’s place. The feast re-enacts Abraham’sobedience. The family will eat about a third of the meal from the feast and donatethe rest to the poor. In the Catholic tradition we are all familiar with this story foundwithin the Old Testament. It points out one small link we have to both the Judaicand Islamic traditions. The story of course deals with obedience to God but in theIslamic tradition also portrays the need to reverence the poor. This is a theme thatcrosses all religious boundaries and it can be a focal point for how we choose tointerpret our theme.Though not strictly a religious holiday, we celebrate Thanksgiving in November.We all remember the stories we learned in elementary school about the “first”Thanksgiving (Check out www. for excellent historical information aboutthis holiday. I think you will find some surprising information.) Whatever the origins,it is always an excellent opportunity to give thanks for our many blessings – as anation, as a Mercy Community, as a family and as an individual. I thank God for allof you and for the opportunity to be a part of your daughter’s education.Happy Thanksgiving!Sincerely,Paulette GaskePrincipalItems of Special InterestNov. 1: All Saints Day-School MassNov. 2: All Souls Day-School PrayerServiceNov. 3: Early Dismissal- 12:42 PM–Faculty MeetingNov. 4: 6:15 PM Mercy Honors Dinner– Romanello’s South RestaurantNov. 5: END OF FIRST QUARTERNov. 5: 6:00 PM MMA Dining Hall-FallSports BanquetNov. 8th: Winter Sports PracticesBeginNov. 10: 7:00 PM MMA Dining HallParent Guild SocialNov. 11: NO SCHOOL in observance ofVeteran’s DayNov. 17: Senior’s Cap and GownMeasurement DayNov. 19: Magic Money SweepstakesParty– Details InsideNov. 20: 8:00 AM-MMA Entrance Examfor 8th Grade StudentsNov. 23: 6:00-8:00 PMParent—Teacher Conferences

From the Officeof Campus Ministry:It was about 5:00p.m. on November 11,1841 when Mother McAuley, spoke to thesisters gathered around her bed, “Thescene is drawing to a close”. She instructed them to light a candle and placeher special crucifix in her hand. She hadalready said her good-bye’s to each ofthem in private and was now ready to joinin the final prayers before she closed her eyes for the last time.One sister, started to pray in a very loud voice because shethought the dying Mother Catherine might be losing her hearing,was interrupted by Catherine saying in a soft voice, “No occasion,my darling, to speak so loud. I hear distinctly”. A few minuteslater Catherine McAuley looked at Sister Teresa and said “withtender concern and regard, “The Sisters are tired. Be sure tohave a comfortable cup of tea for them when I am gone. You canhave it in the parlor.” Mother Catherine died in great peace thatevening. Her legacy, our Mercy Mission, lives on in our lives. Weremember our school’s foundress with a special prayer as well asall who have died in this past year.God of Mercy, in this special time of remembrance, wecall upon Mother Mary Catherine McAuley, Servant ofGod, to intercede for us in your presence. We womenand men of Mercy seek the grace to continue your mission of living mercy in our world today. We are gratefulfor the example of all who have gone before us in faithand trust that you strengthen us and bless our work andservice in your name.
