Mercy Ministry Formation

As a ministry at the centre of the ecological effort of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea (ISMAPNG), and as members of the wider Mercy Mission Formation Network, Rahamim offers a range of formation programs and reflection days exploring our particular expression of Mercy for the Earth community. 
Our formation programs are deeply grounded in the model for life and ministry of our founder Catherine McAuley, as well as the spiritual, biblical, theological and faith traditions that have given rise to our ministry. 
From this foundation we see the need for Mercy in our times with new eyes, extending the circle of mercy wide to include the whole Earth community.
