Foundation Day

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The Mercy Community began on Foundation Day: December 12, 1831. The story of the Religious Sisters of Mercy (RSM) began in Ireland on December 12, 1831 when Catherine McAuley and two of her companions—Mary Ann Doyle and Elizabeth Harley made vows to become the first Sisters of Mercy. Let us celebrate the beginning of our shared Mercy heritage and join together in bringing compassion, justice, hope, peace, and courage to everyone we meet.
