Education

Mercy education has a long and rich history. One finds its roots in Ireland in the ministry of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy and her co-workers. These works of Mercy established by Catherine and her followers were marked by a special concern for the needs of the poor, especially women and children. Mercy education, faithful to the tradition, continues to the present.
 
This ministry has continued for over 170 years with institutions located in 20 states in the continental US, one territory and in 5 countries.

Mercy schools, though geographically and culturally diverse, share a common heritage, legacy and mission. Committed to meeting the current needs of children, young women and men, Mercy secondary and elementary education remains a vital component of the works of the Sisters of Mercy and their partners.
