Mary White is a member of the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta.

'I am passionate about making connections between ideas and processes that can inform not only myself, but the system in which processes and ideas arise from.  My connections are expressed in many formats ranging from word, art, music and movement. My ministry is in education where I am involved in listening, observing, holding and accompanying people in Mercy.  As Catherine did, she walked her journey, and I feel I am doing something very similar.   Completing my Masters in Therapeutic Art Practice last year, I used the MIECAT form of inquiry.  That method is using collected words, stories, poems and images as material for the collation of the resource, namely in this instance informing the Artwork "Si" for the theme “People and Deep Social Change.”'
