Mercy Day Celebrates Our Mercy Sisters

Mercy Day is the feast day which unites Mercy people across the world. Its origin dates back to 24 September 1827, when the House of Mercy on Baggot Street, Dublin was opened by Catherine McAuley as a school for the education of poor women and girls. Today Mercy has spread to 46 countries around the world.

It is also a time when we give thanks for the hard work, commitment and devotion of the Sisters and people of Mercy, for what has been achieved here at Santa Maria College.

Today was a time of reflection and celebration of Mercy and we were fortunate to have the Sisters of Mercy join us for Mass.
