In its programming Mercy Education System of the Americas will seek to facilitate collaborative sharing between and among those serving in Mercy education ministries. Faithful to the work of the task forces, current sharing, and increased opportunities for the future, Mercy Education System will communicate opportunities for collaboration. Mercy Education System of the Americas will be creative in the use of technology to foster this collaboration. In addition, in response to a request from the task forces, a searchable directory of Mercy educators, is also being prepared for this site. It provides an opportunity for Mercy educators to initiate contact with colleagues.
