We are pleased to announce that we will once again have our ORATORICAL CONTEST! This annual contest provides a wonderful forum for the development of our talented students’ oratorical skills. This is a great opportunity to foster the development of poise and confidence in our students and provide a medium to enhance the essential life skill of public speaking! Because of her many years of leadership and service with the Oratorical Contest, we have renamed this event the “Sr. Peggie Merritt Memorial Oratorical Contest”, in memory of Sr. Peggie, who passed away in 2016.

The deadline to enter the Diocesan contest is May 8th and the contest is June 6th at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy.

Registration information is posted on FirstClass.
