Messages Received from the Mercy World #7

Thank you to all who have sent messages for Mercy Day and for the 20th Anniversary Celebrations (23-29 September, 2014). We are hoping to hear from many of our Mercy family and friends over the coming weeks. Send your messages to:







Mercy Community Services is a new Mercy organisation made up of 4 Mercy Ministries of the Sisters of Mercy Brisbane Congregation and tomorrow (Tuesday) we celebrate the start of our Mercy Day celebrations by hosting an all-day event for our staff. There will be reflective talks by Sisters of Mercy, morning tea and lunch together, and inspirational presentations of the great work we do across the organisation.

At the same time we will remember that we are a part of the Mercy family across the world.

Kind regards

Steven King
Executive Director



As staff members who work in the Congregation Office of the Sisters of Mercy Brisbane, we send greetings and best wishes to all, especially those gathered to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Mercy International Association.

As a staff community, we look forward to gathering daily to view the rituals that have been celebrated in Dublin.

We will have our own special celebration tomorrow, Tuesday, the eve of Mercy Day during which we will acknowledge the spirit of Mercy and the part each of us plays in the ongoing Mercy story.

Love and blessings,

Katrina Shears on behalf of the staff of the Brisbane Congregation Office


To all who are celebrating Mercy day, and for the big Mercy family around the world,

lots of love, hope and peace from the desert of South Australia, where we are inspired
by Jesus and Catherine McAuley to continue God's mission of mercy in our patch of
the planet.

God bless,
Elizabeth Young rsm


With our best wishes and love to all who are united in the spirit of Mercy this week – to those celebrating in Dublin, but also to all throughout the world.
The Mercy and Gospel story continues to unfold via the many Faces of Mercy and their thousands of personal interactions each day, bringing care and compassion to those we serve.
