Today, women shaped and inspired by the vision of Catherine McAuley carry out Mercy Ministry in Newfoundland and Labrador and in Peru in a variety of ways. They minister not only in urban areas but also in many rural communities of our province and in Peru; a small number of sisters minister in other provinces of Canada, in the United States of America and in Ireland. In 2007 two sisters began ministry in Africa in collaboration with Sisters of Mercy of Ireland who have missions in Kenya and Zambia.
The Congregation has established a Centre for Ecology and Justice which promotes and raises awareness as well as calls to action in areas related to the ecological and justice issues that concern our twenty-first century world at home and abroad.
Together Sisters of Mercy of Newfoundland make a commitment to alleviate injustice and to continue to reach out in compassion and service to the poor and oppressed, especially to women. We seek to do this through our continued presence to the sick, elderly, poor, prisoners and people living with HIV and AIDS, the marginalised and through our sponsorship and contributions to numerous programs and projects not only in our province but also in the wider global community.
