Young Mercy Leaders Pilgrimage 2013

On Tuesday, 16th July, Mercy students and teachers from across the globe will gather at Mercy International Centre for the commencement of the second Young Mercy Leaders pilgrimage.

Keynote presenters for the 2013 Pilgrimage include:

Áine Barrins RSM who will break open some of Catherine McAuley's story;

Karen Schneider RSM, MD, a paediatric physician with Johns Hopkins University and Health System, who will talk about global Mercy ministry and share stories of her ministry with people living in extreme poverty in various countries around the world;

Mary Reynolds RSM, Executive Director of Mercy International Association, who will engage the theme of Mercy leadership today.

These keynote presentations will be combined with workshops, discussions, rituals, socials, and the sharing of gifts and talents in an evening talent show.

Participants in the inaugural pilgrimage in 2011 came from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Great Britain and United States of America. Reports of that pilgrimage can be accessed here.

During the pilgrimage there will be reporting each day on the programme activities on the www.mercyworld.org website, Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
