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


Mercy Day Celebrations at Mercy International Centre

Sisters of Mercy, Associates, Circle of Mercy Members, Friends of Mercy, Partners in Ministry and Staff all gathered at Mercy International Centre to celebrate Mercy Day. The gathering of more than sixty people was truly an international one and included people who lived or ministered in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, United States, Canada, Newfoundland, England, Wales, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, South Africa, Kenya, Brazil, Pakistan, Samoa and Romania. The Eucharist was a joyful celebration, enriched by a full congregational choir, accompanied by organ and violin. A very inspiring homily was preached by Aine Barrins, rsm. The homily can be accessed here.
