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


Young Mercy Leaders Pilgrimage to Baggot St., Dublin

The inaugural Dublin Pilgrimage for 150 Young Mercy Leaders (10-12 August 2011) has just concluded most successfully following a full programme held at Mercy International Centre, the Catherine McAuley Building (Herbert Street) and the local Catherine McAuley school.

Participants from Mercy schools and universities across the globe have participated in this special Mercy event on their way to WYD activities in Spain.

Reports and photo galleries of the event were posted each day on the mercyworld.org website, Facebook and Twitter pages enabling the Mercy network to 'join in' and follow the events from anywhere in the world.

The report of the Final Day of the Pilgrimage is linked to this item.

Congratulations to all those involved in organising, hosting, facilitating, leading and working on the rich and varied programme over these three marvellous days which were filled with the life and energy of the young people in attendance.

The new circles of energy for Mercy created during these days will continue to intersect and grow in the months ahead.

Messages to Mary Reynolds rsm - Executive Director MIA
