The Sisters of Mercy were founded out of a deep concern for persons who are poor. Today, that commitment is focused in five “critical concerns” that we address through prayer; advocacy with legislators and other government leaders; and corporate engagement.
We believe in the need to work toward the sustainability of life and support movements and legislation that secure the fundamental right to water for everyone, and that address climate change.
We reverence the dignity of each person and believe everyone has the right to a decent home. livelihood, education and healthcare.
We work for peace through prayer, education, and personal and communal practices of nonviolence.
We believe racism is an evil affecting all of us. We work to mobilize Sisters and Mercy Associates in recognizing and dismantling institutional racism in order to become an anti-racist multicultural community.
We believe that women’s education, health and spirituality need special attention. We continue this mission in our schools, colleges, health-care institutions and spirituality centers. We advocate for equal pay, for services for domestic violence victims, and for the rights of girls and women especially in repressive societies.
