2. Nurturance of the charism and the continuation of Catherine’s dream
3. Promotion of a response to global poverty
4. Development of enhanced communication
While the schedule is not complete, a variety of programmes are in place. Details are on the mercyworld.org website and on the Mercy International Site where bookings can be made online.
