The Critical Concern of Anti-Racism

Anti-Racism is one of the five Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy. Racism in all its forms contradicts Catholic Social Teaching, which calls for respect for the human dignity of every person. The Sisters of Mercy oppose racism and are actively working to develop an intercultural perspective within our Institute as well as within the communities we live and serve.
