Mercy Ministry Companions (MMC)Trustee Directors enjoyed a two-day trip to Adelaide this month, the first since the establishment of MMC in 2021.
The trip began with a visit to St Aloysius College for the MMC March Board Meeting.

Christopher Houlihan, Chief Executive of Mercy Education, and Georgina Smith, Chair of Mercy Education, addressed the Board and provided a strategic update. Thank you to Paddy McEvoy, Principal of St Aloysius College, and her staff for hosting our meeting.
Day two was spent at the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea Community Office in Mile End, where Trustee Directors met with and shared a lovely lunch with the Sisters of the Adelaide Community. Thank you to Sr Rosemary Day RSM for her generous hospitality.
