Immigration: Interconnection with Mercy's Critical Concerns

Since arriving in the United States as immigrants from Ireland more than 150 years ago, the Sisters of Mercy have been ministering to and with immigrants. In 2005, we formalized this commitment and issued this statement that calls us to "recognize an urgent duty and challenge to stand in solidarity with immigrants seeking fullness of life.”
