Media Release of Mercy Health joining WA Aged Care Community
A 103 year old with a Social Secretary kept busy all year, but particularly in the weeks surrounding her birthday. Who other than Stani… Sister Stanislaus Zgrajewski.
We are celebrating Stani’s 103rd birthday at ‘Holy Cross’ Aged Care, Wooloowin. These celebrations will continue across many weeks as family, friends, and ‘Holy Cross’ community and Mercy Sisters gather around this remarkable woman. There’s not as much storytelling, music making or joke telling as in the past, nor Stani providing the entertainment, but something very special is happening in Stani’s presence.
Praying together as Mercy Day dawns anew
From the earliest days of the Sisters of Mercy, Nursing has been a core ministry of the Sisters, and a means by which Sisters could bring the compassionate love of God, to those in need of healing.
A new book telling the stories of sixty Irish women who came to join the Sisters of Mercy in Newfoundland was released today in St. John's. Over fourty sisters joined the author, Charlotte Fitzpatrick, rsm to celebrate.
We receive all sorts of inquiries at Mercy Heritage Center—from requests for historic photographs of a ministry for a museum exhibit, to questions like: “My great-aunt was a Sister of Mercy. Can you tell me about her life?” or “Whatever happened to my favorite teacher, Sister Mary Polycarp?”
