The Society of Saint Cyril

Patrick Joyce '01, Assistant Director of Institutional Advancement
Coordinator of the Society of Saint Cyril


Saint Cyril Society originates from Saint Cyril of Jerusalem. St. Cyril was a bishop in the 4th century, and was instrumental at the Council of Constantinople in 381. He is the patron saint of the Carmelite Order and his name was used in 1900 to dedicate St. Cyril College, which became Mount Carmel High School in 1925.

The Society of Saint Cyril was established by the Carmelites in order to recognize those who support the mission of Mount Carmel High School at an exemplary level. Temporary membership in the Society begins at the Sustaining Membership level.  Sustaining Members demonstrate active consistent giving and are working towards Life Membership.  Full Life Membership is obtained when lifetime gifts total $10,000 or more.  Within the Society of Saint Cyril are nine levels of membership.

Levels of Membership include:

Friends: Donors whose gifts to the Mount Carmel community total $10,000 - $24,999.
