Introducing the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas - West Midwest Community

The Sisters of Mercy from California to Michigan have formed a new community.

On July 1, 2008, the Mercy regional communities of Auburn, California; Burlingame, California; Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; and Omaha, Nebraska joined together to become the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas – West Midwest Community.

The new Community includes almost 900 Sisters of Mercy and more than 500 Mercy Associates and Companions in Mercy. We continue to be part of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, an international community of Roman Catholic women vowed to serve people who suffer from poverty, sickness and lack of education, with a special concern for women and children.

While our primary administrative site for the community is in Omaha, Nebraska, we will continue to live and maintain an active presence in our local areas, serving in 32 states and four countries. The sisters you know and the ministries you care about will continue to evolve in response to need and opportunity as they have in the past.

With the caring support of people like you, we have continued to share mercy, bringing light and life where there was little or none. Our name has changed but our mission remains the same. We thank you for your continued support.
