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


International Good Cup of Tea Event

In her last moments Catherine McAuley directed that the Sisters would have a good cup of tea together in the community room, after she had gone.

On the 11/11/11, the 170th anniversary of Catherine's death, we are planning an 'international‘ Good Cup of Tea. It is a fundraising event to help us keep the spirit of Catherine alive in our world to-day.

We invite people across the Mercy world – in communities, schools, hospitals and places of ministry or any other chosen place to organize and hold a ‘Good Cup of Tea’ event, where donations on the day are made to Mercy International Association.

Messages to Mary Reynolds rsm - Executive Director MIA
