Sullivan LL B To the Senior Class of Mount Saint Mary Academy this l959 Mercycrest is more than just a yearbookg it is a summary of four happy and eventful years in our lives. Though four years may seem a relatively short period of time, these high school years have been extremely important to us. These years mark the end of a formative chapter of our lives and the beginning of our adult lives as young Catholic women. Our education at Mount Saint Mary Academy has taught us not only the basic principles of science and education but more important the fundamental truths of our religion and the basic principles of morality. We certainly owe a debt of gratitude to our wonderful faculty who through their tireless efforts have helped us across the thresh- hold from childhood to womanhood, Though we will never be able to fully repay our exemplary teachers for the priceless training which they have given us, we can attempt to repay them in some small way by applying this Catholic training in our daily lives. ln the remaining sections of this yearbook we Seniors will attempt to show how the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social training which we have received at Mount Saint Mary Acaderrgy will help us lead through Christ a richer and fuller life. 1 JV MN If w f E xy X fm "WW I ' 25.53 X12-.-1 7Qyi3ii K 'Ulf X f fyf X .ff I X JL ff Amvifig E Soclality The Sodality is an organization which aims to .

Religious Alumnae The graduating class of 1959 pays tribute to the Religious Alumnae of Mount Saint Mary Academy. From the first graduating closs of 1950 to the ninth class of 1958, Our Lord has chosen forty-eight graduates to spend their lives in His Vineyard. The Religious Sisters of Mercy claim the largest number, but Mount Saint Mary's also has representatives in the Missionary Servants of the Blessed Trinity and the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and lnfirm. We sincerely hope the fine tradition of numerous vocations that these graduates have established will be continued by the Mount Saint Mary graduates of the future. THROUGH CHRIST TO A HAPPIER AND FULLER LIFE for themselves and those under their charge is the theme of their lives as it is the theme of our yearbook.
