On November 10 Marygrove celebrated Founders’ Day, the date that marks the founding of the IHM congregation 163 years ago in Monroe, Michigan. It is the day when we honor the religious order of women, known as the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary—formed in 1845 in Monroe, Michigan, who founded and sponsor Marygrove College. We also celebrate their establishment of Marygrove College in the City of Detroit in 1927. I believe it is important to celebrate this day for many reasons, but among the most significant is to keep alive the memory of this brave group of women who committed themselves to educating underserved groups of people because they felt strongly that it was the right thing to do. They followed their dream and kept their commitment in spite of political opposition, financial hardship and personal criticism.
