What we do
The first Chapter of our original rule written in Catherine’s own handwriting states the original purpose for our existence as Sisters of Mercy.
The Sisters admitted to this Religious Congregation besides attending to their own perfection which is the principal end of all Religious Institutes should also have in view what is the peculiar characteristic of this
Walking Nuns, Walk for Children
15th Dec 2023
Over Christmas a child will phone the NSPCC’s Childline every 45 seconds. For children suffering abuse, every night feels like the longest, so the NSPCC invites people to walk 5k on the longest night of the year to raise money for their Childline service.
Today 17 of our sisters from around London gathered to walk together and raise funds for the NSPCC. Between them they have raised over £1500 and walked 80 km.
They then gathered for lunch with other sisters. A great day was had by all.
Thank you to our Walking Nun’s for raising money and awareness for a great cause.
From their foundation Sisters of Mercy would be seen walking the streets to visit the sick and those in need and so were given the name ‘Walking Nuns’.
