Mercy Day 2013 Greetings #2

Our warmest wishes to all who belong to the Mercy Family as we celebrate Mercy Day.
Many blessings,

- Loreto and the North Sydney Sisters of Mercy


Greetings to all who link through Mercy throughout the world. Here at the Mercy Heritage Centre, Perth Australia we will be celebrating with our usual open day and a cuppa for whoever passes by and joins with us. Being in the inner City we have many callers who have been linked somewhere in the world with Mercy ministries. This year we have the ex students of St Joseph’s School Victoria Square (school actually closed in 1967) hosting the day. They are great story tellers so there will be a buzz throughout the building.

We are with you in prayer and celebration.

Mercy invites us to love and compassion for all living beings.

As we celebrate Mercy Day with our sisters and brothers in our global community may our hearts be open to the cries of our distressed people and earth.
Each day may we be ready to ‘lay down our lives and get up again and again’ to walk the path of Mercy anew.
