Mercy Day greetings

Nga mihi atawhai,

Wishing you a happy Mercy Day as we celebrate the opening of first House of Mercy in Dublin, Ireland on 24 September 1827.

We invite you to watch a video of sisters in Aotearoa New Zealand sharing the meaning of Mercy Day for them.

What Mercy Day means to me

‘He taonga tuku iho.
A treasure that is handed down.’

May Catherine’s original vision
and the wairua of our founders
inspire us today;
not to do what they did then,
but to be where they would be
if they were here now,
standing in our shoes.
