Mercy Enews
No. 422 | 11 July 2011

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


FEED THE WORLD” --- A cry from LIVE AID ....how many years ago? (The Congregation)

...World Hunger is much debated and the need to prioritise it on the global agenda was recalled at the U.N. Summit in New York recently when the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs and the US Secretary of State agreed on an initiative to provide nourishment for children for the first 1,000 days of their lives. However there is much more to solving the hunger problem than sending aid or food parcels....
