The story of the Religious Sisters of Mercy (RSM) began in Ireland on December 12, 1831 when Catherine McAuley and two of her companions–Mary Ann Doyle, and Elizabeth Harley professed their vows and became the first Sisters of Mercy. This year, Maria will celebrate the beginning of our shared Mercy heritage on December 11. We will celebrate and join together in bringing compassion, justice, hope, peace and courage to everyone we meet!
