A Community of Mercy
As the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, Philippines, we are comprised of 41 sisters and 29 associates. The Philippine Community, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in Buffalo in 1957, was part of the original New York, Pennsylvania, Pacific West Community formed in 2008. We began to relate directly to the Institute Leadership Team on January 1, 2017.
Our ministries - from education, healthcare, pastoral, offering assorted social services in impoverished areas and related ministries, meeting spiritual needs and contributing to the life of Catholic parishes - make a difference in the lives of others.
