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

As Autumn takes a hold of our countryside it is more than time to reflect on all that is good in our world.  We have recently watched the Earthshot Prize, an idea from Prince William, about the rebuilding of our natural world.  The five prize winners were all worthy recipients of their awards in the following categories:

protect and restore nature;

clean our air;

revive our oceans;

build a waste-free world and

fix our climate.

The overriding message in all the presentations is that we can all have HOPE.  Hope can give us the courage and the ingenuity to face these problems and find innovative ways to solve them.  Let us all do our own small part to keep this wonderful world as beautiful and as life-giving as we can.
