Alumnae Weekend is Aug. 28-29
Dear Alumnae of MSJ,
With much joy and excitement, the Alumnae officers and I send this letter of invitation to our 2021 MSJ Annual Alumnae Reunion. This year’s celebration is set to take place August 28-29, 2021. We hope you will plan to join us as we rejoice in gathering again to celebrate our days together as Academy students and our lifelong friendships since that time. Enclosed you will find everything you need to make your plans and reserve your spot!
As with so much in our life’s experiences during the time of Covid, this year’s reunion will be different. The Mount is experiencing some maintenance issues in the Conference and Retreat Center buildings (old academy, library, Madonna Room, study hall, dormitory areas, etc.). Therefore, we will NOT be able to provide housing overnight at the Mount.
Instead, a block of rooms has been reserved for the MSJ Alumnae at the Hampton Inn South at 615 Salem Drive in Owensboro for Saturday night, August 28th at the rate of $104 (plus tax). Currently, we have blocked off 30 rooms. Cut-off date for room reservations is July 28! (If you need additional room nights, you can reserve those at the same rate.)
You can make your reservation by calling the Hampton Inn: 270-926-2006; or by going online: http://bit.ly/MountSaintJosephAcademyAlumniReunion.
Our Saturday evening gathering will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes parish hall, 4029 Frederica St., Owensboro KY 42301. It is right on the corner of the bypass and Frederica – very close to the hotel! Saturday registration will be at the parish hall beginning at 4:30 p.m. Blessing and dinner will begin at 5:30.
Our Sunday activities will be held as usual at the Mount. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at the Mount Saint Joseph Auditorium at the park side entrance. We will begin with our annual business meeting at 9:15 a.m. in the gym. After the business meeting, class pictures will be taken followed by our Sunday Liturgy in the Chapel. Our time together concludes with our Alumnae Banquet and program in the gym.
Though our celebration will be different, it will be wonderful to gather with all of you! We will celebrate the anniversary classes of 2020 and 2021 – that includes all those with class years ending in 0 and 5 and those ending in 1 and 6! It should be grand, and we hope you won’t miss it!
Our theme this year is Mardi Gras! Get out your purple, gold and green and get ready to celebrate!
