Elissa Merkl, MC '71, and her sister, Marianne Merkl, are the co-authors of the memoir Traveling Beyond the Topic of Cancer: The Sisters’ Journey (Dog Ear Publishing, 2014). The book, Elissa writes, is more than a memoir of her sister’s “final battle” with cancer; it is “a journey of two sisters who led active lives, a chronicle of life lived to the fullest.”

Lorraine Arsenault, MC '70, is the author of the "In the Light," which was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul Miraculous Messages from Heaven (2013).

Phyllis Zagano, MC '69, a columnist with National Catholic Reporter received the 2014 Isaac Hecker Award for Social Justice from Boston’s Paulist Center on Jan 25. She is senior research associate-in-residence in Hofstra University's Department of Religion and an internationally acclaimed Catholic scholar and lecturer on contemporary spirituality and women's issues in the church. Since 1974, the annual Hecker Award recognizes a North American Catholic who has labored for a more just and peaceful world. Former award recipients include Dorothy Day, Cesar Chavez, and Sister Helen Prejean.
