“There are the things the poor prize more highly than gold, though they cost the donor nothing. Among these are the kind word, the gently compassionate look, and the patient hearing of their sorrows.”
The Sisters of Mercy are called to help alleviate the growing suffering of our brothers and sisters from around the world, particularly those who are poor, ill, oppressed, or uneducated. We realize we must be involved with their suffering and embrace our call to personal conversion as we work with others to convert our own suppressive behaviors and unjust ways of doing things.
It is through the tradition of our foundress Catherine McAuley that we draw the motivation to empower others to live lives of dignity. We also look to the example of Jesus who offered help to all those in need.
It is our mission to facilitate access to information and help services, collaborating with other justice organizations, mobilizing for public awareness and corporate voice, and making the tools to achieving equality and dignity available to all.
