About Us

fostering mercy spirituality and ethos

The aim of the Association is to further Mercy spirituality and ethos for secondary education through sharing expertise and resources and by providing national and international forums for Mercy educators.

The Association is open to educators in Australia, New Zealand and Oceania in secondary schools auspiced by the Sisters of Mercy or where the Sisters of Mercy were founders and leaders.

God's Mercy to us is at the heart of our work as secondary educators. Catherine McAuley teaches us that "Mercy is the principal path marked out by Jesus for those who desire to follow him". To teach as she did is to help students grow in faith and in a joyful awareness of the providential Mercy of God in their lives.
