Catherine McAuley

Through a series of celebrations, we honor the anniversary of the opening of the first House of Mercy on September 24, 1827, in Dublin, Ireland. Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, devoted her life to the poor, sick, and uneducated, and we continue her legacy of caring and compassion today in the name of Mercy.
