About the event

The Catherine McAuley Center joins the international Mercy Community to commemorate the death of Catherine McAuley on Nov. 11.

From Mercy International Assocation:

"As we remember the loss Catherine was to the emerging Mercy community, we also remember those we love who have died. We gather today in remembrance to pray with, and for, each other, to support and encourage each other. We gather in faith and hope to remember and honour all those who have been called to eternal life.

Gathering in the community room, having a good cup of tea following Catherine’s death, no doubt many stories and memories were shared. We too gather to share our memories: we remember Catherine's vision, her service to those on the margins of society especially women and children, and her relationship with God 'for whom alone we go forward or stay back.' We recall with joy the love she shared with all those who passed through the doors of Baggot Street and the hope she held for a future where all were treated with compassion and dignity."
