Prayer for the Beatification of Catherine McAuley
Loving God, you chose Catherine McAuley for the service of your people who are poor, sick and uneducated. You inspired her to found the Sisters of Mercy that these good works might endure. Give to each of us a portion of her compassionate spirit and ardent desire to serve your suffering people.
Bless all our undertakings and grant that union and charity may always thrive among us. Graciously hear our prayer for Catherine, and by granting the favors we ask through her intercession, hasten the day when her sanctity will be celebrated by all the church. Amen.
Mercy Day is a day to reflect on the life and mission of Catherine McAuley. The school community gathered for Mass first thing in the morning. The Seniors then presented the story of Mother McAuley for all the students, their parents, and the Sisters of Mercy. The Seniors and the Faculty then went on to celebrate the day with lunch at UNO alumni center. It was a lovely day celebrating with our global Mercy community and rededicating ourselves to the vision of service set forth by Catherine McAuley.
GolfFest ‘22 was another success. Thank you to all those who joined us at The Players Club and participated online in our silent auction. With your help we were able to aid a lot of young women attend Mercy High School. We always remember the words of Mother McAuley, “No work of charity can be more productive if good to society than the careful instruction of women.” Those that participated on the course or through the silent auction embodied that through their generosity during this event. Thank you!
