Spirituality – where Tikanga Maori and Tikanga Mercy meet

The interweaving of Māori and Mercy values was the theme of a conference of Mercy leaders held in Auckland last month, and attended by more than 70 Sisters of Mercy and their partners in ministry.

The first of two keynote speakers was Sir Edward Durie, the first Māori to serve as a High Court Judge in New Zealand and a leading expert on the Treaty of Waitangi. The second was Sister of Mercy Mary Reynolds, executive director of Mercy International Association, whose presentation was delivered live from the House of Mercy in Baggot Street, Dublin.
