“For the circle of mercy is timeless.”

On March 13, the Junior Ring Mass kicked off an emotional milestone for the Junior Class of 2019. After an afternoon of team building activities at Malvern Retreat House, the juniors chatted excitedly about the eventful evening to come later that night. One junior, Peggy Zou, revealed a touching story about her sentiment and excitement for receiving the class rings. Peggy said, “Before I left my home country, my mother gave me a ring as a gift—it is a common tradition in China for mothers to give their daughters a ring on their 18th birthday. However, since I left before I turned 18, I received the ring earlier so that my mother could ‘be with me’ on my birthday. To me, the class ring serves as a reminder of my time here at Merion with my 101 sisters!”

With the spirit of camaraderie in the air, the juniors walked down the chapel aisle with eager smiles on their faces. As the night progressed, Rev. Swope delivered a touching homily, Mr. Pidot pronounce every name correctly, and Sr. Barbara placed the class rings on each girl’s hand. Indeed, it was a surreal experience for each of the juniors; A feeling of pride and mercy ringing through their hearts. Then, singing loudly to the tune of “Mater Misericordiae,” the juniors led the procession out of the chapel. With their new rings and enthusiastic smiles, the junior class of 2019 officially joined the sisterhood of mercy.
