Earth as a Critical Concern for Sisters of Mercy

The Sisters of Mercy, through the Social Justice Advocacy program, have identified five interconnected "critical concerns" that cry out for attention at this time.

These critical concerns are: 

  • Earth,
  • Immigration,
  • Nonviolence,
  • Antiracism, and
  • Women.

Visit Earth as a Critical Concern for more information on the works of the Sisters of Mercy "to act in harmony and interdependence with all of creation."  See also Earth Resources and Read Our Related Stories , both of which are linked at the bottom of the page .
