Sept. 24 celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy, the day the House on Baggot Street opened as a school for poor young girls and a residence for homeless girls and women thanks to Catherine McAuley. With the education and care of women and children established as its mission, Catherine McAuley’s House of Mercy, today known as Mercy International Centre, is the foundation for all in Mercy education.
