MERCY EDUCATION SYSTEM OF THE AMERICAS: ASSUMPTIONS

Mercy Education System of the Americas:

founded on shared assumptions affirmed by the Sisters of Mercy;
built on a governance structure to fulfill these assumptions;
formed by the work of task forces which included Sisters of Mercy and women and men of Mercy entrusted with developing recommendations for the working of the system faithful to the assumptions.

Assumptions

  • We will commit to the Catholic identity and Mercy heritage of our schools and educational ministries
  • The Sisters of Mercy desire a partnership with the laity in continuing the mission of Mercy.

“The union which exists amongst you will draw the favor and blessing of Heaven…”

Catherine McAuley letter to Josephine Warde: January 27,1838
