Mercy Partners travelling a well-lit path: ten years of compassion, justice, respect and hope

Nano Nagle

November 14, 2018 marked the tenth anniversary of Mercy Partners establishment by pontifical rite as an Ecclesial Public Juridic Person.

To mark the occasion, Mercy Partners Council hosted an anniversary Mass and Reception at The Cathedral of St Stephen on November 19. The story of Mercy Partners, Travelling a Well-lit Path, was launched at the November 19 event.

The theme for our anniversary year, Travelling a Well-lit Path, honours those who have gone before us: the founders of Mercy Partners and Mercy Partners ministries. They have provided us with a legacy of compassion, mercy, justice and hospitality.

In this anniversary year we will be celebrating in a number of ways including:

  • anniversary masses in Brisbane, Rockhampton, Townsville and Cairns
  • retreats and prayer resources reflecting Travelling a Well-lit Path
  • a multi-charism international pilgrimage which will take place from 4-14 October 2019.

As the year progresses we will be adding content including video interviews, footage and photographs from our tenth anniversary masses along with inspirational articles and blogs.
