The blessings of Christmas to you

Christmas invites us to pause and to reflect on the year gone by. Part of this reflection is undoubtedly gratitude.

On behalf of the Board and Staff of Mercy Works Inc., I would like to acknowledge the Congregation Leaders who have faithfully embraced Mercy Works Inc. during 2010.

To the hundreds of Sisters of Mercy, our co-workers and partners who have spread the good news of Mercy Works Inc. and its activities, we salute you!

And to our friends in the broader community – the many individuals, as well as schools, parishes and community groups – who have so generously supported the communities we work with in Australia and overseas, our deep gratitude goes to you.

We wish you the blessings of Christmas and look forward to your continued support in 2011.
