Who We Are

Striving to continue the legacy of Catherine McAuley, Women with a Mission giving society combines resources, vision and passion for helping others to support and improve health care in our communities.

Our Heritage

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 legacy to serve the poor, sick and uneducated – especially women, children and the elderly.
