About Us

In 2008, Mercy Partners was established as a pontifical and ministerial PJP to provide sponsorship and governance for ministries conducted by the Sisters of Mercy in Queensland.

And because they are partners, their relationships rely more on the formative value of friendship and collective vision than on inflexible institutional structures.
