WHAT IS THE MERCY EDUCATION SYSTEM?

The Mercy Education System of the Americas (MESA) is an international system of Mercy education ministries with ministries located in Argentina, Belize, Guam, Honduras, Jamaica, the Philippines, and the United States. As reflected in the first Spirit of the Institute Mercy Education System holds in trust the ministries of MESA and places its work in the tradition of the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, Catherine McAuley. Mercy education ministries, the ministries of MESA, though geographically diverse, share a common heritage, legacy and mission. Committed to meeting current needs Mercy education remains a vital component of the works of the Sisters of Mercy. The mission of MESA through its governance and service components upholds this commitment.

WHAT DOES MERCY EDUCATION MEAN?

“To be a Mercy Girl is to be the girl who challenges others to think not only about the girls sitting next to you, but to be an advocate and a global voice for the girls halfway across the world. It is to act as a unifying bridge in a place amongst diversity.”

“We have one solid comfort amidst this little tripping about: our hearts can always be in the same place, centered in God, for whom alone we go forward or stay back.”

“Mercymount prides itself on challenging its students to reach beyond their current capacity for learning and setting goals that surpass current state standards while continually integrating the Sisters of Mercy Mission throughout the learning process.”

Did you know there are 56 Mercy education ministries in Argentina, Belize, Guam, Honduras, Jamaica, the Philippines and the United States?
