On Monday, 16 September  there was much camaraderie and cheer in Young when the Mercy Associates welcomed the Mercy Associates from Griffith.


The two groups came together for a safeguarding training session with Mercy Associates Network Facilitator for New South Wales, Christine Convery and then after having their photo taken at the end of the training, some of them went on to share a lovely meal together.

Mercy Associates are people who cherish the virtue and practice of mercy in their lives, and seek a faith community to nurture their commitment to mercy.

They meet for prayer, formation, reflection, and to engage in service initiatives based on mercy and justice within and beyond their local community. Mercy Associates groups are found in a variety of places including parishes and larger networks, and there are groups in locations around Australia
