Mcauley award dinner
The annual McAuley Award Dinner was created to showcase those individuals who show support and strong commitment to Notre Dame High School and the community. These individuals contribute to Notre Dame in a way similar to what Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, had done herself.
Catherine McAuley founded the Sisters of Mercy in 1831 in Dublin, Ireland. While there, the Sisters worked tirelessly everywhere they went, educating children and adults, thus beginning the tradition of service that continues today.
Notre Dame High School is one of many co-educational schools in the United States that is sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas. Notre Dame was built in 1955 and graduated its first class in June of 1956. Mercy secondary schools are committed to meetings the needs of young women and men. Education is still a vital component of the works of the Sisters of Mercy and their co-ministers.
It is our pleasure to recognize those individuals who ensure the longevity of Notre Dame and who help guarantee an excellent education for our students. It is through their commitment and generosity that Notre Dame is able to successfully function as a school. The McAuley Dinner takes place each October and all proceeds help with the operating costs of the school.
