This resource guide presents links and information to assist you in meeting the course objectives and learning outcomes of LIBA 150 - College Success and the Mercy Experience.
The mission of the Conference for Mercy Higher Education is the preservation and development of the core Catholic identity and mission of Mercy higher education in accord with the spirit, mission, and heritage of the Sisters of Mercy.
The Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy is a Catholic Religious Women's Congregation. Catherine McAuley founded the Sisters of Mercy in 1831 in Dublin, Ireland. Her aim at that time was to 'care for the poor, sick and ignorant'. Today, 2,077 members follow in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley, in 9 countries.
We Sisters of Mercy are an international community of Roman Catholic women who dedicate our lives to the Gospel of Jesus and take vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and service. Inspired by the life of Jesus and by our founder Catherine McAuley, we envision a just world for people who are poor, sick and uneducated. We commit our lives to God and our resources to serve, advocate and pray for those in need around the world. (About Us tab)
