It’s a big year for the Mercy Education Conference! For only the second time in its 41-year history, the event will be held outside of the United States — in Kingston, Jamaica. This location is integral to the conference theme: “Earth Justice: Our Mercy Commitment to Care for Creation.”
Speakers will address the climate crisis and its impact on the most marginalized in our world. Topics include water justice and environmental racism. What are the global ramifications of actions and decisions made in highly developed countries such as the United States? How can each of us commit to ecological conversion through our personal environmental practices and within our Mercy schools?
The 2023 conference will take place from the morning of Thursday, October 12 through the afternoon of Friday, October 13 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. If you are planning to participate, please take the earliest opportunity to secure necessary travel documents (passports, visas). Preliminary travel details are available in our informational program. Full conference details will be shared in May 2023. Please contact Kimberly Baxter with any questions.
