The Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy (Ireland) was formed in 1994. At that time 26 separate units of the Mercy family in Ireland, (with a tradition of being autonomous at diocesan level) and the Sisters of Mercy in South Africa came together to form one Congregation in order to be more effective in Mercy mission.
The Congregation consists of seven provinces There are four provinces in Ireland with Kenya, South Africa and the United States of America making up the other three provinces.
At present we have 2,272 members with communities in Brazil, Britain, Ireland, Kenya, Nigeria, Peru, South Africa, United States and Zambia.
As we explore the heart of who we are as Sisters of Mercy and as we discern our mission in our time and in our evolving universe we ask:
