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

The season of Easter has now come and we celebrate for fifty days until Pentecost.  Everywhere around us we begin to see the signs of new growth – blossoms on the trees, an abundance of flowers springing up and new life with lambs in the fields.  It truly is a season of new beginnings.

We hope for ourselves that as the national lockdown eases, it may be a new beginning for each of us too, living in the spirit of Our Risen Lord.  Every blessing to you during this special time.

Sr Colette Cronin, Institute Leader
