Mid-Atlantic

A Community of Mercy

Sisters in processionIn the Mid-Atlantic Community, almost 900 Sisters of Mercy, primarily throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, commit their lives to God, and their resources to serving others. Sharing in our mission are 971 Mercy Associates and one Companion in Mercy.

You can also share in our mission by becoming a sister, associate, companion, social justice advocate or by making a donation to our life-changing works of Mercy.

The Mid-Atlantic joins the other five communities of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas in living the legacy started by our founder, Catherine McAuley, in 1831.

The administrative office of the Mid-Atlantic Community is located in Merion, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, with satellite offices in Brooklyn, NY, Dallas, PA, Watchung, NJ, and Hartsdale, NY.
