Welcome to the website of the Institute of Our Lady of Mercy

The season of Lent has now begun with its traditional elements of Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.  These elements can take many forms and perhaps even more so during our continued lockdown.  Luckily enough for us all there are many resources being put online to help us with reflecting where our lives are heading.  Let us be encouraged and inspired to live this Lent well and draw closer to the great feast of Easter, renewed and refreshed in our faith.
