While many of our ministries continue under the direct guidance of Sisters of Mercy, others do not. This may be because we have decided to leave a particular place and so hand over that ministry to like-minded individuals or organisations. Another reason for an increased commitment to forming partnerships is that inevitably the number of Sisters available for ministry is declining.
Enshrined in our 2018 Congregational Chapter Statement is the declaration of our intent to ” join with others in responding with compassion to critical issues of injustice.”
For this reason our focus on identifying and supporting partners engaged in addressing the challenges facing our society today, has become a crucial part of our work. We welcome this phase of our ministry life as it allows us to share our values and perspectives while learning from others.
