Lunch discussion to focus on five critical concerns of mercy
Members of the University community are invited to a luncheon and discussion with Sister Maureen Mitchell, vice president of the Sisters of Mercy’s Northeast community. Hosted by Salve Regina’s mission committee, the luncheon will be held at noon Tuesday, March 6 in Ochre Court.
The discussion will center on the five critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy: nonviolence, racism, immigration, Earth and women.
The Sisters of Mercy were founded out of a deep concern for persons who are poor. Today, that commitment is focused on the critical concerns, which are addressed through prayer; attention to personal, communal and institutional choices; education; advocacy with legislators and other government leaders; and corporate engagement.
