A Community of Mercy

Sisters of Mercy, inspired by the life of Jesus and founder Catherine McAuley, envision a just world for people who are poor, sick, and uneducated.  In the Northeast Community, Sisters of Mercy serve in schools, hospitals, parishes, retreat centers, and in social ministries in Albany, New York; Connecticut; New Hampshire; Portland, Maine; Providence, Rhode Island; and Vermont.

As Roman Catholic women of faith, Sisters of Mercy commit our lives to God and resources to serve, advocate and pray for those in need around the world. Through prayer and service, sisters, with associates, companions, supporters and volunteers address the causes and effects of violence, racism, degradation of the Earth and injustice to women and immigrants.

The Northeast community, with a central administrative office in Cumberland, Rhode Island, is one of the six Communities that comprise the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

You can share in our mission by becoming a sister, associate, Mercy Volunteer Corps member, social justice advocate, by making a donation.
