About the Sisters of Mercy Brisbane
The Brisbane Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy was established from Ireland in 1861 under the leadership of Mother Vincent Whitty. Their inspiration is drawn from their founder, Catherine McAuley, who recognised the needs of those who were marginalized and oppressed by unjust social attitudes and practices of the day.

Today, with their partners in ministry, the Sisters of Mercy seek to develop collaborative relationships and processes to continue Catherine McAuley’s tradition of service in sustainable ways.
