Scheduling usually depends upon the court's availability. The court should be able to tell you if it has been rescheduled or it the court is going to reschedule.
The court itself or the court website should be able to tell you whether its been rescheduled.

Your ex should have told you that she had adjourned the case, although there will likely be no sanction for her failure to do so. Motions are heard by each judge every other week, so she may reschedule for any Friday morning during which your judge sits; and she will have to object before your Judgment of Divorce is entered. Has a Judgment of Divorce been prepared incorporating the terms of the mediation agreement? If it has, and you are satisfied that it is accurate, you may move the Court for entry of the Judgment. My guess is that your ex will re-notice her objection for the same date if she has not done so prior.
In Kent County, the party who cancels the hearing will reschedule to another Friday morning motion hearing. The judge will likely not require a time limit in rescheduling the matter. If you need this heard, you should retain an attorney to file your own motion.
