Mercy Archives is excited to announce a brand-new outreach program, the Mercy Archives Speaker Series, set to launch with our first speaker on October 2nd, 2023. This program promotes the works and interests of sisters, associates, ministries, and others across Mercy to share knowledge, stories, and life within Mercy. The hope will be that the topics or demonstrations will be of interest to both our internal audiences – sisters, associates, staff, and ministries – and the general public. The program is scheduled to be hosted at Mercy Heritage Center in Belmont, N.C. and will offer both in-person and virtual options for participation. We have been extremely fortunate to have received interest from many folks and are excited to announce our first speaker will be Sister Cynthia Serjak. Sister Cynthia, known for many talents, will speak to her work as a composer, and the latest collaboration with Mercy Archives. Along with the topics, she and our Music Archives Technician, Clarke Armstrong, will be discussing the current accomplishments and progress on the music project that has been an ongoing initiative for nearly a year now. Commonly asked questions about our music collections and data on the music housed at Mercy Heritage Center will also be discussed.
