Welcome home friend! We assume you have reached this page because you are an alumni of Our Lady of Mercy School in East Greenwich, RI. Whether you attended this school for 2 years or 9 we are glad you’re back! We are currently working hard to connect our past with our present and would love to hear from you. Please bear with us while we update this site and check back regularly for news, updates and ways to reconnect with your elementary/middle school. We know many people have been looking for ways to help or volunteer and we want to make that easy for you to do.
In the mean time, please feel free to browse our local Catholic Alumni Partnership (CAP) web site by clicking on the link below from your home computer. The Diocese has set up this webpage for the specific purpose of donating funds to our schools to help keep them running. CAP is the creation of the late Robert W. Wilson, a major supporter of scholarships to the Inner-City Scholarship Fund in the Archdiocese of New York. Though he was not Catholic, Mr. Wilson was impressed with what the Catholic schools were doing to educate the poor in New York City. He saw the need for additional funding for Catholic schools. He proposed a program through the Robert W. Wilson Charitable Trust that would work with elementary schools to find and solicit their alumni. In the fall of 2009, CAP was launched in over 300 schools across six arch/dioceses in the Northeast. Inspired by the responses that followed over the next four years, Mr. Wilson decided to support additional dioceses wishing to connect with their elementary school alumni. That decision was the impetus for a second wave of diocesan CAP programs. The Diocese of Providence has been chosen as one of five dioceses nationally for the second cohort. Our Lady of Mercy is working in partnership with the Diocese of Providence to help keep our school successful and thriving for years to come.
Another feature of this program is the ability to make a donation in someone’s name for those loved ones who may have attended OLM and have since passed. You may also want to check with the Human Resource Department at your place of employment about matching programs. Some companies are willing to match a donation that you make to charities. This would double your gift!
Once on the CAP website simply use the pull down menu to find OLM and know with confidence that whatever tax deductible funds you chose to donate will go DIRECTLY to the school you love!
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
