Mercy International Reflection Process Report to be Released on 21 April 2017

Editor: This coming weekend is Mercy2Earth weekend, such an important date that we have coined the term 'Mercy to Earth' and are working with our existing MIA logo — see examples below—to highlight our response to the invitation of Pope Francis: 'May the works of mercy also include care for our common home'.

On Friday, 21 April, leading into the weekend, MIA Leaders and Board Members will receive a copy of the MIRP Report from the March meeting of the Guiding Team and Coordinators with Elizabeth Davis rsm (Members liaison) and Mary Reynolds rsm (Board representative). Coordinators will then commence circulating the MIRP Report through their congregations and institutes to all MIRP participants, Sisters of Mercy and partners in Mercy.

The Report: Review of the Mercy International Reflection Process: "What has been discovered? What has been revealed?" will be available in English for download from MercyeNews Issue #718 and the website, next Wednesday, 26 April. Plans are also underway for the translation of the Report. Details will be advised in a forthcoming issue of MercyeNews.
