Beschrijving

Geschiedenis

The Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy was founded in Dublin, Ireland by Catherine McAuley on December 12, 1831. At the request of Bishop M.A. Fleming, three sisters made a foundation in St. John's on June 3, 1842 to open schools as well as visit the sick and the poor in their homes. Their first school opened at Mercy Convent, Military Road on May 1, 1843. From this nucleus, other convents were opened throughout the province.

Through the years the Sisters of Mercy were engaged primarily in the teaching and nursing professions. In recent years their main focus has been in Pastoral Ministries in various localities in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and in Peru.
