New Intern at Mercy Global Action
I am Sr. Amanda Carrier, RSM and it is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new intern at Mercy Global Action. Over the course of my formation as a sister these past nine years my understanding and commitment to social justice has grown thanks in great part to the many wonderful connections I have made through the Mercy community. These relationships with likeminded and passionate people have served to deepen my understanding and broaden my horizons as I have continuously explored justice issues through ministry as well as through the lens of our vowed lives as sisters.
Serving in direct ministry as a chef in soup kitchens for much of the past nine years I have been blessed with many windows into the lives of those adversely affected by social injustice. This has molded my passion and commitment to service into a more informed partnership with those I meet in ministry. It has been my privilege to walk with the people I have met and cared for, as well as the earth which sustains us all. I am excited to take these profound experiences of presence and transform them into something new. Joining the team at Mercy Global Action has provided me with a great opportunity to engage this transformation in the meaningful work already underway here in New York.
In this internship I am grateful to receive the wonderful mentoring of Sr. Angela and Colleen who have so warmly welcomed me to Mercy Global Action. It is my hope that I will be able to add my own gifts to the ministry they have already created. I know I will be able to learn so much from them, and that this time will serve to develop and deepen my commitment to Mercy’s concerns in our world today.
