Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy

Community Organizations

  • Birthright of Rochester
    Since 1971, Birthright of Rochester has offered free and confidential pregnancy support to any woman regardless of age, income or ethnicity. Birthright’s focus is on the distressed mother and her baby. Our guiding principle is: “It is the right of every woman to give birth and the right of every child to be born.” Staffed almost exclusively by volunteers, we understand that each woman's situation is unique and our objective is to help her understand that she has options. We then provide support and advocacy to her through our follow-up program. With the help of generous donations of our community, we provide maternity clothes, layettes for newborns and infant clothing along with our advocacy. Emphasizing accessibility, Birthright offers multiple locations throughout the greater Rochester area, and a 24-hour hotline so that assistance is always only a phone call away.
  • Offspring Charities
    Join us in REBUILDING THE LIVES OF BATTERED FAMILIES by helping us bring much needed relief to the many women and children victimized by Domestic Abuse in our community…Take a stand, lend a hand and help us put an end to the silence of Domestic Abuse.

The Critical Concern of Women

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 care for women in today's world with todeay's needs and concerns."

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
