Young Mercy Network

WHO ARE WE?

Founded as a collaborative initiative of the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta and North Sydney, Young Mercy Network is a Sydney-based group of young women (aged 18-35) who have attended Mercy schools or wish to be associated with the Mercy tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Venerable Catherine McAuley, the Founder of the Sisters of Mercy, recognised the talents of young women who, with their enthusiasm and abilities, could create a more just and compassionate society.

Young Mercy Network aims to give life to Catherine’s recognition and live out the mission of Mercy in this 21st century in practical and creative ways, working in collaboration with and through local, national and international communities. 

OUR MEMBERSHIP

MAGnet Group

Whilst we draw our membership mainly from the following Mercy High Schools of Sydney (Mercy 5)

We also invite all young adults that receive, hold and give mercy in their lives. It is a dynamic, social and enthusiastic group of young adults who share a common interest in being more informed on social justice issues and taking action.

Past members of the group have been involved in a number of initiatives including an immersion to Peru, fundraisers for Mercy Works, annual national gatherings and local social justice initiatives.         

WHEN AND WHERE WE MEET

In 2017 we will meet 4 times to continue our connection with the Mercy vision - or be introduced to it - and plan fundraising and advocacy activities, as well as organise our participation in volunteering projects . In 2016 we trialled themed meetings where we chose to focus on a particular area of concern to us in relation to Social justice. We meet in the McAuley room inside the Sisters of Mercy convent Parramatta . Entry is on Victoria Road. A light supper is provided.
