The Sisters of Mercy invite you to a year of special gatherings to enable Outreach and Solidarity with our neighbors who are suffering hate crimes, discrimination, and fear of deportation. During this year-long program we will highlight the sacredness of each member of the human family in our global village.

This year-long program has a threefold focus.
