Last year on or around November 11, the 170th anniversary of Catherine McAuley's death, Mercy groups throughout the world joined in an international 'Good Cup of Tea' event, gathering in their ministry places and homes, schools, hospitals and parishes. The images and reports received and published on the website show that these gatherings were occasions of hospitality, mutuality, education and celebration.
This year MIA invites the members of the Mercy network to "Gather Again with Catherine" for a good cup of tea to celebrate the life and legacy of Catherine McAuley and to raise funds for the ongoing work of Mercy International Association. You might do this as your Mercy Day celebration.
Further details will be published in forthcoming issues of Mercy E-news and updated resources will be posted on the mercyworld.org website.
We invite you to register your event details on the website and to provide us with a report and images after the event for publishing on the website.
