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.

Tea party raises $1,600 for International Good Cup of Tea (Americas)

An employee committee at Mercy Administration Center in Belmont, North Carolina, planned a tea party, complete with tea, scones and ladies in hats and gloves as a highlight of a campaign that raised $1,600 for the International Good Cup of Tea campaign. On Friday, October 7, the entire staff gathered to find white table cloths, china tea sets and ladies dressed in finery from bygone days. Sisters of Mercy who were on hand joined the staff in donning a variety of brightly colored hats.
