Founders Day 2012 CelebrantsOn Saturday, June 16th, 2012,  seven alumnae, along with some family and friends, met at the Mount for a delicious lunch and presentation to re-energize the Emmitsburg Club. 

The audience was treated to a viewing of the first half of the film, The Spirit Continues, which traces the beginnings of the seminary and college in 1808 at Mary’s Mountain and the coming of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and her sisters to St. Joseph’s Valley to establish a girl’s school one year later, in 1809.

 Lunch was followed by a delightful talk by Fr. Michael Roach, the Mount’s adjunct professor of history, about the first days of the two Catholic academic communities in Emmitsburg. He shared many stories of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton and her colleagues and mentors at the Mount.  

We hope to plan more events, at least annually, to keep the Emmitsburg Club active. We encourage Members interested in connecting with the Emmitsburg Club to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
