Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, used her inheritance in service of the needs of her time. Today, Sisters of Mercy, through Mercy International Association, use their resources to respond to issues of global poverty demonstrated in the massive displacement of persons worldwide...This vision keeps alive the founding spirit of Catherine among peoples of the world most in need of God's compassion and mercy.

Invitation to Participate in On-Line Mercy Theological Reflection Course (MIA)

Mercy International Association is exploring options for on-line courses in theological reflection and Mercy spirituality.

You are invited to consider being part of a pilot group of eight students who will engage with others in the Mercy World in studying and applying the theological reflection process through a Mercy lens.

The framework for the course was developed by Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA) and is entitled Foundations of Theological Reflection.  This course provided by Duquesne will be adapted to include readings from Mercy scholars and case studies from Mercy ministries to enhance conversation and study.  This Mercy-adapted course will be facilitated by Mercy biblical scholar Kathleen Rushton rsm (Aotearoa New Zealand).
 For more information on the program offered by Duquesne, click here.
To register for the course through MIA, contact Mary Kay Dobrovolny rsm- Assistant Director Heritage & Spirituality.
