Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, used her inheritance in service of the needs of her time. Today, Sisters of Mercy, through Mercy International Association, use their resources to respond to issues of global poverty demonstrated in the massive displacement of persons worldwide...This vision keeps alive the founding spirit of Catherine among peoples of the world most in need of God's compassion and mercy.
from the MIA Visioning Statement 2007


Keeping the Founding Spirit of Catherine Alive (MIA)

Central to the MIA Vision is keeping alive the Founding Spirit of Catherine. One of the ways in which this is done is through offering programmes at MIC that are experiential and reflective. The hope is that as participants in these programmes drink deeply of her spirit, they will be inspired to face the critical concerns of today with her depth of imagination and courage.Over the coming months the following programmes, relating to Catherine are on offer at MIC:

  • Come Home to Catherine: July 4th -10th
  • Engaging with the spirit of Catherine to look at Mercy today: July 30th – August 1st
  • Catherine’s Suscipe: Prayer of a ‘Social Mystic’: August 8th – August 14th
  • Affectionately Yours: Meeting Catherine in her Letters: August 22nd – August 28th
  • Going Deeper with Catherine: September 19th – 25th September
  • Catherine McAuley: Blessed in Life and Death: November 7th – 12th

For those who wish to engage with the Spirit of Catherine but who cannot join us in Baggot Street, we are offering a series of six presentations on Catherine which will be accessible through e-News. Each presentation is accompanied by a reflection process.

The first of these Formed and Reformed is offered this week.
