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

We have now moved into the Ordinary Time of the Church’s Year, though it is often highlighted with various Saint’s Days along the way.  So we can still find reasons to celebrate!

We pray especially now as we move into this month that the 21st June will still be able to be a day of release for many people though we stay alert to the difficulties that may still remain.

We continue to pray that our world will experience a healing of body, mind and spirit and we remember especially those who are suffering at this time and those who have lost loved ones.

Sr Colette Cronin, Institute Leader
