Religious Sisters of Mercy (RSM)

Updated Aug. 22, 2023

Inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by the life of founder Catherine McAuley, the Sisters of Mercy envision a just world for people who are poor, sick and uneducated. Founded in 1831 in Dublin, Ireland, the Sisters of Mercy have served in the Diocese of Little Rock since 1851. They profess four vows to God: poverty, chastity, obedience and service to the poor, sick and uneducated and commit their resources to serve, advocate and pray for those in need around the world.
