Become a Sister of Mercy
As Sisters of Mercy we respond to the call to know God’s loving kindness and commit our lives to sharing this with others through a life of prayer, community and service. We have been drawn into a community of religious women dedicated to the Mercy mission.
Being a Sister of Mercy is about answering God’s call in each moment of life. In responding to local and global needs, we are engaged in a variety of services including education; health care; social welfare; spirituality; theology and scripture; communication and media; ecumenism; governance and administration; advocating for justice; working with Aboriginal people; outreach to asylum seekers and refugees; raising awareness of environmental and ecological issues; offering hospitality and prayer in diverse ways.
Why become a Sister of Mercy?
While a life of Mercy can be undertaken on your own, as a Sister of Mercy a woman responding to God’s call will join a rich, fulfilling and supportive group of women committed to giving witness to the Gospel through how they live and in what they do.
