Class Reps and Reunions

Dear Mercy Women,

We have had a number of inquiries at the Mercy Alumnae Association office about an upcoming March 10 event for alumnae. While we hope the event is successful, we also want to clarify that it is not sponsored by the Mercy Alumnae Association and that the event's “residual funds” are being donated to a non-Mercy organization. Just wanted to let you know! (All individual class reunions are posted on the website—be sure to let us know when your class begins making its plans so we can publicize it here on our Reunions page.)


Due to the pandemic, it has been difficult for individual classes to hold reunions safely, but Mercy girls have not been deterred from creatively planning reunions for the future.

Customarily, classes hold reunions every five years.  Listed below are class representatives and reunion coordinators with openings for more volunteers--Think about it!  Volunteer to be a coordinator by contacting the Mercy San Francisco Alumnae Office.

The Class of 1989 celebrated its 30th reunion on an all-alumnae coastal cruise in January 2020 which was organized by CruiseOne franchise owner Alexandra Millard Ghiozzi '89.
