Since our foundation from the House of Mercy, Baggot Street, Dublin in 1842, members of the Newfoundland Congregation of Sisters of Mercy have moved off the island for ministry in other parts of the world especially to two regions of Peru.
Sisters have worked in the Labrador region of this province, in Ontario, Canada; in Florida, USA; in Dublin, Ireland; and in Africa.
At this moment there are seventy-six members of the Sisters of Mercy of Newfoundland. Most are living in this most easterly province of Canada, one sister lives in Ontario and eight live in Peru. Four of the sisters living in Peru were born there.
