Mercy Secondary Education International Forum, Dublin, Ireland
The original idea for this gathering came out of the Mercy Secondary Education Association of the Americas 20th Anniversary conference in Farmington Hills, Michigan in October, 2001. The dream of the MSEA Board to have an international conference where Catherine began her ministry is soon to become a reality with the support of the Institute Leadership Team of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.
Our goal in formulating this international forum is to have representation from as many Mercy schools as possible for this historic event. It is our hope that 100 educators will attend the conference from Mercy schools located throughout the world. The conference program is designed first and foremost to encourage collaboration and connections for all Mercy secondary schools. Keynote presentation and panel topics include: "Where is Mercy in Our Schools?" Spirituality of a Mercy Educator," "World Vision and Responsibility" and "Envisioning our future as Catholic and Mercy schools of excellence
