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

Welcome to 2022 – a new year and hopefully new opportunities of showing our care for each other and for planet Earth.  As the Covid virus seems to be finding more ways of becoming transmissible, we too, have to become more adept at finding ways to support each other.  Maybe we will make that extra phone call or send an email to someone who depends on it for hearing about the outside world.  Maybe we will spend a little longer on our walks to appreciate the signs of nature around us and maybe we may spend a few minutes of time speaking to our God about the world he made in such beauty and what we can do to enhance its beauty for others.

May I wish you all, on behalf of the Institute, every blessing and happiness for 2022 and our prayer remains that we will all remain safe.

Sr Colette Cronin, Institute Leader
