Mercy Endeavour event in support of refugees

Mercy Endeavour Australia‘s annual Mercy Day Brunch will be held on Sunday September 10 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.


Guest speakers for this year’s event are Sister Margaret Roni RSM, from Papua New Guinea and Mrs Margery Jackman, Principal of Catherine McAuley, Westmead.


A raffle will be held during the brunch. First prize is an oil painting entitled “Hope” by Kiama artist Suzanne Warwick (pictured).


Mercy Endeavour Australia had its beginnings in 1989 when a small group of former Mercy students gathered to assist refugees. “Our concern was and has remained for refugees”, explains Mercy Endeavour member Mrs Noela Kelman.


“Our motto is “˜to reach out and give hope’ and we try to provide prayerful and financial support for the Mercy Refugee Service.”
