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


Reflecting on my Experience During Wellsprings (MIA)

Over the past month we have seen and heard from the four presenters at the Watering the Roots at the Wellspring of Mercy month long renewal programme. Each week in Mercy E-news we have been able to experience, through the powerful medium of video, a summary of the insights Elizabeth, Elaine, Mary and Ray Maria shared with the participants. Now it is the participants' turn!
