Educational Resources

Mercy Education System of the Americas through its programming and services will provide and collaboratively work with others to develop resources for furthering the charism, core values and tradition of Mercy and for mission integration and mission effectiveness. It will provide education and experiences to further knowledge, understanding and commitment now and into the future. Resources will be posted at this site and posting will be ongoing.

Currently linked on the Covenant page, “To Hold in Trust” is a resource developed in August 2016 as background information on the formation of Mercy Education System of the Americas.

Also posted on this website are resources generated by the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy, Mercy International Association and Mercy International Centre. Of note, on Mercy International Association’s website you can subscribe and receive their weekly newsletter, Mercy E-News.
