Mercy’s story began with Catherine McAuley and two companions; today, it’s carried out by hundreds of thousands of people in hospitals, schools and community programs across the globe.

On Sunday, September 24th, marks 196 years since Sisters of Mercy Founder Catherine McAuley opened the House of Mercy in Dublin, Ireland. Its doors have remained open since 1827 to serve the poor, sick and uneducated.

Nearly two centuries later, in our school, we continue Catherine’s legacy of caring and compassion, not only within Coláiste Muire, but also within our communities where the need remains great.

We extend warm wishes to the Mercy Sisters living and working here in our community here in Cobh.
