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 (MIA)

Support the work of Mercy International Association by hosting a "Good Cup of Tea" event on or around November 11th, the 170th anniversary of Catherine's death.

This is what your fundraising event will enable us to do:

Provide a homespace in Catherine’s original house where all associated with Mercy can be welcomed home and refreshed at the wellspring of Mercy.

Communicate the Mercy story on a global scale.

Bring the case studies of marginalised people supported by ministries of the Sisters of Mercy to decision making bodies such as the UN or the EU and change policies with regard to their rights.

Details and support materials ( brochure, flyer, poster, registration form) are linked to this item. In addition to the ability to register your event online here.

Messages to Mary Reynolds rsm- Executive Director MIA

Editor: We are seeking photos from your event, or from Mercy places and spaces where Sisters, Associates, colleagues and members of the Mercy network are shown enjoying a "good" cup of tea prior to the event. These we will use in image galleries on the website. Send your images to mercynews@fraynework.com.au
