Through the Mercy Mission & Development Office we support Sisters in their ministry in Mission areas outside Ireland. Support is provided through access to funding where appropriate, training in development-related subjects and the facilitation of best practice within Mercy ministry.
All our efforts within the field of development are based on the broad definition as “Helping people to take control of their lives, express their own demands and find solutions to their own problems.”
Regular visits are made to ministry sites outside Ireland to monitor both the systems in place on the ground and the impact achieved by the ministry activities.
A significant area of focus for us is promotion of the “missionary approach to development”.
