A mission-minded woman, Catherine McAuley founded Sisters of Mercy. In 1827 she was moved to respond to the suffering and poverty she witnessed around her in Dublin, Ireland. With a $1 million inheritance she established the first House of Mercy in Dublin. Today, we continue to strive to carry on Catherine’s mission to serve the poor, sick and uneducated – especially women, children and the elderly.
WWAM brings together women from diverse backgrounds with a common goal of making a difference through the power of giving together. Members gather twice a year to vote on possible projects and to learn about the impact of their giving. Additional opportunities are provided for networking and education about the work of the Mercy ministry in our community.
Membership is open to all who support the mission of Mercy Hospital with a minimum $1,000 annual gift. Each year, women collectively pool their resources and collaborate with Mercy administration to identify and fund creative solutions to important health care needs.
Check back soon for information about upcoming events.
