- Mercy Vision and Mission
Animated by our Motto - Via, Veritas et Vita, we educate young women in the Way - rooted in Gospel values, the Truth - unleashing creative energy for the pursuit of knowledge and the Life - nurturing a hope-filled vision for leadership and responsible service.
- Mercy Core Values
--Hospitality is a warm and generous welcoming of all.
We will cultivate an atmosphere of non-violence, belonging, and reverence.
--Compassionate Service is living out the Gospel imperative to care for those in need.
We will seek to understand the needs of others and respond with Christ-like mercy.
--Justice-making is removing barriers that prohibit people from flourishing.
We will strive to open our hearts and minds as we work with others to transform unjust systems.
--Concern for Women & Women’s Issues is recognizing the inherent dignity and God-given equality of all human life.
We will work to promote a just treatment of women in all aspects of church and society.
--Global Vision is seeing the world from God’s perspective.
We will promote an equitable global community through careful stewardship of human, economic, and natural resources.
- Mercy Critical Concerns
--We must deepen and assimilate more consciously the practice of NONVIOLENCE as an integral aspect of the charism of mercy.
--We must deepen our response to the unrecognized and unreconciled RACISM, past and present, within our community.
--We must revere EARTH and work effectively toward the sustainability of life and toward universal recognition of the fundamental right to water.
--We must continue to embrace our particular concern for WOMEN.
--We must stand in solidarity with IMMIGRANTS.
