The Critical Concern of the Earth

The 4th Institute Chapter of the Sisters of Mercy recognized the need to intesify our responses to critical needs of our times which call us to conversion. This includes "to take care of God's gift to us- the Earth. Currently, water is of a great concern because not everyone has clean water to drink, while others have more than enough."

The Sisters of Mercy ask that all those who benefit from the work of Catherine McAuley, and all the women who have followed in her footsteps, would join in the efforts to help make the world a better place as Jesus taught us.
