8th Worldwide Reunion in 2014 with Toronto as hosting chapter
May 31, 2010
During our 7th WWR celebration dinner on February 21, Maryknollers voted to have the next reunion in Vancouver. Unfortunately, they are not able to do this and asked the Toronto Chapter to take it. Toronto graciously replied "yes". To make the celebration more meaningful, the Toronto girls asked to co-celebrate their Chapter's 30th Anniversary and the WWR in 2014. I support this decision and know that you too will understand that circumstances have changed our original plans.
Please watch out for future announcements of details.
I would like to extend sincere gratitude to you all for the support of this everlasting event, the Maryknoll 7th Worldwide Reunion (WWR) and Maryknoll Convent School 85th Anniversary Celebration in Year 2010.
The Worldwide Reunions started in the nineties, when a group of MCS graduates decided to bring the triennial celebrations to all alumnae chapters around the world. In 2007, the MCS and Maryknoll Sisters School (MSS) alumnae associations in California collaborated and co-hosted the Maryknoll 6th WWR.
With the Hong Kong alumnae chapter - the very original MCS Former Students' Association - being voted the host of the 7th WWR, we hope to carry on the spirit and tradition of a joint-alumnae event. 2010 also happens to be the 85th Anniversary of MCS. This is just too good an opportunity to pass up without some glorious celebrations! So to all Maryknollers from all parts of the world - come join your homecoming and return to your alma mater!
The 7th WWR activities will last 3 days: starting with school visits on February 19, class gatherings or optional tours on February 20 and closing with the Gala Dinner in celebration of MCS 85th Anniversary on February 21 as the grand finale.
