Today’s young women are faced with many challenges associated with life in the 21st century. Mercy’s Catholic tradition grounds students with a moral character equipped to take on the most challenging issues of today. As inspired by our foundress, Catherine McAuley, we are able to combine her unwavering commitment to God with a firm understanding of the Catholic faith, and ultimately the ability to tackle life in the real world.
Campus Ministry Opportunities:
The St. Joseph of Arimathea Society lives out the works of mercy to Pray for the Living and the Dead and also to Bury the Dead. Partnered with Meadow View Cemetery, Mercy students have discerned and made commitments to join this ministry in the work of leading burial services, serving as pallbearers, including the deceased in their prayer intentions, fundraising to purchase and place headstones on unmarked graves, and volunteering in education and service needs.
All Mercy Academy parents, grandparents, guardians and interested family members are invited to join our Families at Mercy Prayer Group. The group meets every Friday, once per month in the Mercy chapel and remotely on zoom the remaining Fridays, sharing selected verses, intentions and praying for every student, faculty and staff member by name once per semester. All are welcome to join any Friday that you can. No RSVP is necessary.
Please contact Mrs. Frances Ashbrook with questions regarding Campus Ministry at Mercy.
