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.

MIA welcomes Women’s Therapy Centre to MIC on Mercy Day

On 24th September, 1827, at least four years before the foundation of the Mercy Congregation, the House on Baggot Street opened as a school for poor young girls and a residence for homeless girls and women. On the same date, 183 years later, Mercy Day, 2010, MIA is delighted to welcome the Women’s Therapy Centre into what was originally the House of Mercy. One of the two principle objects of MIA is to respond to the cry of the poor in Dublin in a spirit of mutuality, compassion and mercy. MIA’s desire to promote this object and the Women’s Therapy project’s need for a Centre met, resulting in the location of the project on the top floor of 23 Herbert Street, the building which now forms part of Mercy International Centre.
