Mercy Ethos

The Institute Mercy Ethos Office works with the Institute Leadership Team to develop programs, strategies, resources and formation experiences to ensure that the Mercy charism is alive, evident and inspiring the lives, work and decisions of Mercy leaders and staff in the various ministries.


The office offers a variety of programs such as the one day introduction to Mercy titled Mercy Matters a two and half day program Mercy Story which explores the life and mission of Catherine McAuley, local founding stories and fostering and developing Mercy in the workplace. The Mercy Leadership Program & Dublin Pilgrimage is a 6 day program which offers Sisters and leaders in Mercy ministries the opportunity to be inspired by the founding story and discover what leadership in Mercy ministry asks of them.

To mark the Extraordinary Year of Mercy, an app has been developed to assist with daily reflection and prayer on embodying Mercy. The ‘Mercy-ing’ app assists users to reflect each morning and evening, to frame their day, and to be attentive to the events, interactions, relationships and circumstances of each day within the context of ‘being Mercy’.
