What is Mercy Day?

Mercy Day is a Feast Day at the College. where we acknowledge and celebrate the Sisters of Mercy, our heritage and those who have shaped the College into what we know today.

But it’s also a day of fun, and a day where students play an active part in fundraising. It’s the culmination of weeks of hard work and brainstorming in Homerooms, to come up with that perfect idea to raise money for Sister Denise Coghlan and the work she does in Cambodia. This year, Mercy Day raised an amazing $23,000.
