THE TROCAIRE SOCIETY
Trocaire is the Gaelic word for Mercy. Catherine McAuley defined Mercy as a “vivacious generosity of spirit…a gift given in response to a need.”
Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, continually addressed the needs of those in her community. Whether their needs were educational, physical of spiritual, Catherine was a witness to the merciful presence of God in our world. Inspired by Catherine’s commitment to cultivate mercy in the lives of others, Merion Mercy designates our highest annual giving level to respond to the needs of our 21st-century learning community.
The Trocaire Society sustains these works through exceptionally generous donations that support the greatest needs of MMA. As Merion Mercy Academy’s leading donor group, we honor the following donors who have made an extraordinary commitment to Merion Mercy by giving gifts of $20,000 or more.
