Leadership LackAwanna Core Project Collaboration

 

Leadership Lackawanna, a program of The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, has selected the Catherine McAuley Center’s proposal to create an Outdoor Learning and Activity Center as its Core Program Project for 2019-2020. The activity center will provide opportunities for our mothers and children to spend time and interact with one another in an environment that is safe and stimulating. This is especially important during the summer months when our children do not have the benefit of structured learning activities provided in school and their families lack the resources to enroll them in camp.

The activity center will be designed this spring with set-up and installation to follow this summer with an opening day event to be scheduled at a future date TBD. 

 

CANCELED : Swing for Mercy Golf Tournament 2020 

 
 
The 2020 Swing for Mercy Golf Tournament previously scheduled for Monday, June 22, at the Wyoming Valley Country Club has been canceled in consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
A fundraising golf tournament began in 1990, the event became an annual event which continues to present day. While the venue has changed over time, Swing for Mercy has been held in June at the Wyoming Valley Country Club for the last fifteen years. In 1996, the Golf Committee started the tradition of recognizing a Woman of the Year, an individual who exemplifies the Mercy spirit of compassion and service through her own commitment to the Sisters of Mercy.

It is the hope of the golf committee, Center staff and the Board of Directors that the tournament will return in 2021.
