Sister Lisa Griffith, RSM addressed Academy students at a special Halloween Assembly.

The Academy of Our Lady of Guam (AOLG) students, faculty and staff recently had the opportunity to meet the Executive Director of Mercy Education System of the Americas (MESA), Sister Lisa Griffith, RSM. As the director of MESA, her role is to ensure that the charism, values and tradition of Mercy is supported and sustained in Mercy schools worlwide.

According to Sr. Lisa, there are two types of Mercy schools: sponsored and affiliated. In sponsored Mercy schools, the Sisters of Mercy have governance over the schools. However, in affiliated schools, the Bishop of the school's location has governance over the school. Currently, under MESA, there are 57 schools worldwide comprising of about 26,000 students ranging from nursery to high school.

Sr. Lisa's primary purpose while on Guam is to visit the different Mercy schools on island. Sponsored Mercy schools in Guam are Infant of Prague Nursery and Kindergarten and Mercy Heights Nursery and Kindergarten. The affiliated schools in Guam include Bishop Baumgartner Memorial Catholic School, St. Anthony Catholic School, Santa Barbara Catholic School and Academy of Our Lady of Guam.
