Mercy Education Limited is an incorporated Ministry of the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea (ISMAPNG), charged with operating all educational ministries over which the Institute holds complete sponsorship.   Through its Board of Directors, Mercy Education is responsible for the governance and operation of twelve Mercy Sponsored Colleges owned by ISMAPNG.

Lucy brings a wealth of experience to her new role. In her earlier professional career in education, Lucy was Principal at Our Lady of Sion College, Box Hill Victoria for ten years. From the late 1990’s, Lucy worked at the Tribunal of the Catholic Church, as Director of Towards Healing Victoria.
