JOIN US! PRAY THE ROSARY! - Submitted by Sister Sally Bohnett, SND
Every day of this week (October 5-9) the Rosary will be prayed aloud in St. Joseph Chapel. It will start at 12:15 p.m. and only takes 20 minutes. Has it been awhile since you have prayed a rosary? Have you heard of the rosary but not sure what it is about? Many religious traditions use beads to count their prayers. The repetition of the rosary prayers is calming and is a great form of meditation. Come see what it is all about! Let us pray aloud this ancient prayer for the many prayer intentions of our faculty, staff, and students. Free rosaries will be available!

Mercy College of Ohio requires all students to complete an online training that will help each of you learn more about Campus Safety and Security requirements mandated by Federal Law, such as Title IX, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and the Campus SaVE Act.  This training is an integral part of our policy to maintain a safe campus community, one free from sexual harassment, discrimination and sexual assault, which includes our online, on-campus, and off-campus locations. 
All Mercy College of Ohio students MUST complete this required education by Friday, October 16, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Students who do NOT complete the required education by the deadline will have a hold placed on their accounts which means they will not be able to register for Spring classes until the required education is complete and the hold removed. Click here to access this education.
You will also receive an email reminder at your account. Please watch for it!  If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Pizio, Title IX Coordinator and Dean of Students at 419-251-1710.
