Email This Page




What is the sum of 8 and 5?

In honor of the 150th Anniversary of St. Mary’s Academy, the community gathered to celebrate Mass in the amazingly transformed Bishop Evans Sports Center.  Over 300 alumnae, alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, friends, and members of the Loretto Community filled the space with smiling faces, joyous music and prayers of thanksgiving.  St. Mary’s Academy Trustee, Rev. Marty Lally CoL presided with Concelebrants Rev. John P. FItzgibbons SJ, Rev. Timothy M. McMahon SJ, and Rev. Ben Meyer.  Musicians included SAIMARAC, members from Most Precious Blood, Roberta Hamilton-Griggs, and Gracie Carr.

The celebration continued in the new Community Center, opening its doors to the SMA community for the first time.  The day was full of wonderful opportunities to commemorate our history and revel in what our future holds.  Here are a few photos from the day.
