Service is an integral component to Catherine McAuley’s mission to reach out to persons who are poor, sick and who live on the margins of society. For this reason, service learning stands as a living legacy of our foundress to be handed down to all who belong to the Mercy community.
Service-learning is a method of teaching, learning and reflecting that combines academic classroom curriculum with meaningful service throughout the community. As a teaching methodology, it falls under the philosophy of experiential education. More specifically, it integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach involvement in the community, participation in the world, and becoming women of compassionate service and women of influence.

Immersion trips are offered yearly. Immersion trips are planned to correlate directly with the Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy. These trips help the students build relationships with those on the margins of society through service, reflection and prayer.
This past year a Tri-School Immersion trip was held in San Franicsco, where the students served those in need. Please click the Immersion photo below to view this amazing experience.
