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.
Sisters minister not only in urban areas but also in many rural communities of our province and in Peru; one sister lives in Ontario.
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 the marginalized. Our Congregation also ministers through our sponsorship and contributions to numerous programs and projects, not only in our province and in Peru but also in the wider global community.
