Center for Mercy and Catholic Studies

The work of the Center for Mercy & Catholic Studies includes an innovative effort to enhance both the mission and Catholic identity of Mercyhurst University.

To this end, it will highlight the breadth and depth of the Catholic intellectual tradition, as well as the five critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

They are:

Caring for the poor, especially women and children

Caring for immigrants

Caring for the earth/creation

Promoting nonviolence

Combating racism

The Center will also collaborate with the Diocese of Erie to provide educational opportunities that can vitalize faith/reason through public scholarship and hospitable dialogue.
