Our purpose

Mercy Partners was established to:

  • sponsor ministries in the name of the Catholic Church
  • respond compassionately and creatively to existing and emerging needs within communities
  • advocate in the public forum on behalf of the poor and disadvantaged, particularly those associated with our ministries
  • provide a pathway in the Catholic Church for canonical leadership of ministries by lay people.

In carrying out our purpose, Mercy Partners preserves a clear and unqualified commitment to the Catholic faith. Our commitment helps us ensure that the ministries entrusted to our care by their founding congregations continue to remain faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
