Beautiful words of welcome from Sr. Mary Persico, IHM:
"We live in a social environment bowed low by violence, hatred, impoverishment, and empty rhetoric. At the same time our beautiful world evokes creativity, wonder, curiosity, and a sense of peace in our hearts and minds. As an academic community, Marywood has the unique power to mold, mend, and mentor the students who come to us seeking truth, beauty, and identity. We have the personal and professional resources to lead them to choose beauty over chaos, good over evil, reverence over prejudice."

Marywood University A Message from Sister Mary Persico, IHM
It is with hopeful anticipation that I write to you in the early days of my tenure at Marywood. A new day stretches before us and with it enormous opportunities to embrace the noble work that we are called to do at this moment in Marywood’s history.
