A Sponsored Ministry of the
SISTERS OF MERCY OF THE AMERICAS
Mercy Volunteer Corps is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas. Mercy Volunteers serve in Mercy ministries alongside Sisters of Mercy in both the United States and South America. Each MVC community is supported by an RSM connector who engages volunteers in the greater Mercy Community.
Mercy Volunteers often serve alongside Sisters of Mercy at their ministries. Pictured: Volunteer Salena visits the elderly in Guyana with Sr. Jenny Wilson.
Sisters of Mercy and Mercy Volunteers advocate for the critical concerns together by attending rallies, information sessions, and trainings.
Sisters of Mercy often invite Mercy Volunteers to social gatherings including this BBQ in San Francisco and trips to the beach!
“I can safely say if I hadn’t served with Mercy Volunteer Corps, I wouldn’t be here now, in a tiny convent room with a sink, living with four sisters and another candidate. That year allowed me to take a good hard look at what was going to be important in my life. Mercy Volunteer Corps provided me with the time, the space, and the experience to realize what kind of life God had planned for me, and that it was far better than what I had ever dreamed up – for me and for the world.”
-Colleen O’Toole, RSM ’11
