Mercy Global Action

Catherine's practical, whole-hearted response to the injustices of her day, inspires Mercy International Association to hear and respond to the 'cry of Earth and the cry of the Poor' in our day.

Catherine McAuley

Catherine McAuley was born in Dublin, Ireland, in September, 1778. In 1824 she used her inheritance from an Irish couple she had served for twenty years to build a large House of Mercy on Baggot Street, Dublin in response to the needs of the poor of Dublin. Today that house is known as Mercy International Centre and is home to the Mercy family from all over the world.
