Mercy Week


On Sept. 24, 1827, in Dublin, Ireland, Catherine McAuley founded a home to shelter and educate young girls. This house would be the foundation for the Sisters of Mercy—and 17 U.S. colleges and universities, including ours.

Each September, we celebrate this heritage during Mercy Week to coincide with the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy.


A Weeklong Celebration

Each year, Mercy Week features a variety of educational and service-related programming that brings our campus community together, from inspirational films and engaging lectures to shared meals and lively discussions.

We talk about current crises in our country and world, and think of ways the Mercy community can impact change. We also honor exceptional individuals at GMercyU for their commitment to service.

Specific programming changes from year to year, but the Mercy message is always loud and clear.

Mercy Week 2022 will feature a variety of both in-person and virtual programming. Join us throughout the week for a variety of programming focusing on social justice and the Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy. Please check back for more details, including webinar links.
