- Penny Toss
1924.12.16The first mention of this event was made in a SHCJ Rosemont Community Epiphany letter that described the event that took place on December 16, 1924: "On the night before the students left, they assembled before the front door and, carrying red candles, sang carols all round the house (Main Building). When they reached the porch, Reverend Mother went out to them and threw pennies, for which they scrambled in true Christmas waif (children) fashion." The Penny Toss is an old English tradition which was brought over from the SHCJ Sisters. Mother Mary Lawrence was an Oxford University grad and the very first President at Rosemont. The second was Mother Mary Ignatius who was from Ireland and served as President from 1924-1939.
