A new era for Sisters of Mercy in Australia and PNG
Media Release - November 21, 2011
On December 12, 2011, the 180th anniversary of the founding of the Sisters of Mercy by Venerable Catherine McAuley in Ireland, 14 of the 17 Australian Mercy congregations, along with their sisters from the Autonomous Region of Papua New Guinea (PNG), will come together as one new institute to be known as Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea.
For many years, but particularly since 2005, the 17 Australian congregations and the Autonomous Region of PNG, which have been federated in the present Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia since 1981, have been searching for the best way to nurture their unity and to strengthen their capacity for engaging in God’s mission of mercy in this twenty-first century...
While three of the existing 17 congregations – Brisbane, North Sydney and Parramatta – will remain independent, they and the sisters in the Institute are anticipating ways of continuing to collaborate and share their common mercy heritage and their love of their founder Catherine McAuley.
The foundation of the new Institute will be celebrated with a Eucharist in St Mary’s Cathedral, Sydney, on December 18 at 2:00pm.

Wyndham joins efforts to end human trafficking (Americas)
After five years of hard work on the part of Mercy's shareholder advocacy staff and members of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR), Wyndham Hotels has become the latest in the travel industry to sign the ECPAT Code to end human trafficking. In 2006, Sr. Valerie Heinonen, osu, director of shareholder advocacy for Mercy Investment Services, engaged Wyndham in a dialogue on behalf of the Sisters of Mercy. Mercy, along with other members of ICCR, filed a resolution on the issue of human trafficking in 2007 and withdrew it based on positive conversations with Wyndham.

Mercy preserves jobs of Joplin employees (Americas)
Regular readers of Mercy e-News will have followed the reporting over a number of editions of developments at St John's Mercy in Joplin Missouri, since the tornado hit on May 22.
The 2,000 people who worked for St. John's Mercy when the tornado hit lost homes, cars and belongings, but they didn't lose their jobs.
Mercy health care system pledged to keep everyone on the payroll — even though the hospital where most of them worked was destroyed. And when the rebuilt hospital opens in about three years, the employees are promised jobs there, too.
