Celebrating Foundation Day - 12 December

Today, 12 December, we have the joy of celebrating together once again, the foundation day of the Sisters of Mercy.

On this day 177 years ago Catherine McAuley, Mary Anne Doyle and Elizabeth Harley made their profession as Sisters of Mercy in the Presentation Convent in Georges Hill in Dublin, Ireland. From that time to today, the charism of Mercy continues to be a vibrant channel of God's Loving Mercy in the world.

In the words of Elizabeth Davis rsm, ' May we go on now to make new foundations, not necessarily of place, but of vision and of commitment and of energy'.
