"Migrants and refugees are
not pawns 
on the chessboard
of humanity. They are children,
women, and men who leave or are
forced to leave their home
for various reasons, who share a legitimate desire for knowing
and having, but above all
for being more."

Pope Francis

Responding to struggle
and resilience

Sister Catherine McNeil



The Sisters of Mercy's commitment to comprehensive immigration reform comes out of our deep belief in the dignity of each human person created by God. For more than 150 years the sisters have ministered to and with immigrants in schools, hospitals, parishes and social service centers.

Five Sisters of Mercy minister at the Center of Mercy in Hicksville, New York, to immigrants learning English. These sisters continue the legacy of Mercy education in a new time and place, teaching while bringing love and compassion to these often marginalized members of our society.

The Sisters of Mercy are grateful for our partners who work with us and with immigrants and refugees across this country and throughout the world. You embody the values in which we are grounded as a nation and people of faith.

We ask for your help in continuing to walk with migrants and refugees in the quest for dignity and humane treatment. Your prayers and generous financial support will ensure that no one in need of God's mercy will be excluded.
