As you turn the path that lies ahead show Mercy to those you meet

As a student of Mercy College I am called to:

  • value my own worth as the child of a loving God

  • develop and share my gifts and talents to the best of my ability

  • show respect for all, having regard for the rights of others

  • be particularly sensitive to those who have special needs

  • live in harmony with others, knowing how to forgive and to seek forgiveness

  • be a good team player, co-operative with teachers and other students

  • appreciate all of creation, caring for the earth and respecting life

  • grow in my understanding of my cultural heritage

  • respect people of other races, traditions and creeds

  • learn to be a responsible citizen of Ireland and a conscientious member of the European Community

Prayer of Catherine McAuley

My God, I am Yours for all eternity.
Teach me to cast my whole self into the arms
Of your providence with the most lively,
unbounded confidence in your compassionate, tender piety.
Grant, O Most Merciful redeemer,
that whatever you ordain or permit may always
be acceptable to me.
Take from my heart all painful anxiety;
Suffer nothing to afflict me but sin,
nothing to delight me but the hope of
coming to the Possession of you,
my God, in your
own everlasting kingdom.
