Greetings from the Monarch Spark, Bishop McGann-Mercy’s student-staffed newspaper. In an effort to make the printed word more widely available to our extended Mercy community, we have uploaded our newspaper to our website. We have proudly produced twelve volumes, and we have been awarded a host of honors at the Adelphi Quill Awards. These include: 3rd place Best Arts Review, honorable mention Best Arts Review, second place Best Editorial, and third place Most Outstanding Reporter for Katie Brownfiel class of 2016, 2nd place Best Opinion Piece for Veronica Marrinan class of 2014, Best Opinion Piece from Jessica Allen class of 2013, and honorable mention Most Outstanding Reporter Kaylee Navarra class of 2013. We publish approximately three editions each school year, and each issue includes school and national news, “Senior Spotlights,” reviews, sports reporting, and words from our Mercy students.

We hope that you enjoy our publications, both past and present,
Katie Brownfiel, Class of 2016
