To show our deep appreciation for Sister Mary Lou’s impact in the community, Mercy Center partnered with the Sisters Academy of NJ Alumnae Association to launch a fund in her honor to support Sisters Academy. Together, we have raised over $102,622 towards our goal of $120,000 by December 2020.
We are excited to announce that an incredibly generous, anonymous donor has pledged to fully match our total goal of $120,000. The Sister Mary Lou Miller Legacy Fund could reach $240,000! However, achieving this goal can only happen with your help.
Please join us in honoring Sister Mary Lou’s legacy. Your support allows us to provide an education of excellence and make meaningful, life-long change for the next generation of girls.
”During my time at Sisters Academy as the Director of Social Services, we have faced many mental health issues concerning our students and/or families. Sister Mary Lou has a unique perspective and understanding when it comes to mental health issues. Many hold a stigma of mental illness, but Sister Mary Lou does not. Whenever there was a situation going on concerning a student or family, Sister Mary Lou completely backed me up on how I felt we should handle the issue, while giving her own insight into the situation. This is not often found with Principals in a school setting. Part of why I love working at Sisters Academy is because I have the support of Sister Mary Lou when it comes to doing my job as a mental health counselor.”

“When I was hired by Sister Mary Lou, I was so pleased to find out how much she believes in having a strong STEM program and that she is a strong advocate of teaching our girls about the importance of it. I was happy to join a staff where the principal is a huge advocate for women in science.”
