"We, Sisters of Mercy Parramatta Congregation, will share with others, including people of different faiths and no religious faith, the joys and struggles of this spiritual journey." (Chapter Statement).

Writing about this week when Christians mark Holy Week, Week as Muslims continue their holy month of Ramadan, and as Jews prepare for the celebration of Passover, Archbishop Martin, Primate of All Ireland said:

"There is no better time for people of all faith traditions to unite in a great cry for peace, justice, and dignity for all,” the archbishop said...

“We are an Easter people which means that we live not only in hope of our own salvation but also in the knowledge of our co-responsibility to protect humanity and to work for the freedom and flourishing of all,” 
We invite you to join us in prayer, thought or reflection on the significance of these days for ourselves, for each other, for the wider community and for the needs of the world in which we live.
