Merici Academy Summer Reunion

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Merici Academy Summer Reunion at the Hotel Sofitel.  The Merici Academy was a Catholic school for girls founded in La Habana, Cuba in 1941.  This year’s event got started with a mass officiated by Father Ernesto Fernandez-Travieso, followed by a fun cocktail hour where old friends gathered and shared stories, photographs and lots of good memories.  We then continued on to the luncheon and the ladies had a great time celebrating anniversaries and hugging friends, some of which they had not seen in many years.  They enjoyed a nice lunch, lots of door prizes and a raffle.  This year artist George Rodez donated a painting from his Afro-Caribbean series.  You can check out his amazing work at  I had a wonderful afternoon among lovely ladies.  Please enjoy the slideshow I have put together with some of the photos from the event.

    The Merici Luncheon pictures are beautiful! Everything came out perfectly and everyone had a grand time! One could feel the “happiness and camaraderie” in the Air! Love the photos!
