Sisters of Mercy (RSM)

The first Sisters of Mercy arrived in the United States from Ireland in 1843 at the invitation of the Bishop of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Their energy in ministering to the sick and economically poor attracted so many new members that by 1854, sisters had come from Ireland to settle in New York City; Chicago, Illinois; Little Rock, Arkansas; and San Francisco, California, spreading across the country and establishing schools and hospitals. Since then, the works of Mercy have expanded to embrace education, health care and pastoral and social services in hundreds of sites today. 

Our daily lives as Sisters of Mercy are rooted in four core values inspired by the life of our founder Catherine McAuley: Spirituality, Community, Service, Social Justice and Our Critical Concerns, and the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.
