The Network thanks Mercyhurst Preparatory School in Erie, PA for sharing the story of their mural project that highlights the commitment and involvement of the Sisters of Mercy.

"Mercyhurst Preparatory School (MPS - formally Mercyhurst Seminary) in Erie, PA, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, made headlines when the largest linear environmental outdoor mural in Northwestern Pennsylvania was revealed to the public in August.

The enormous mural project, publicly touting the mission and values of the Sisters of Mercy, is a 8,200 square foot environment, composed of 26 pillars and 177 - 8 foot panels that cover 1,416 square feet of the schools brick facade.

Each charism of the Sisters of Mercy:  Compassionate Presence, Service, Justice, Hospitality, and Concern for the Dignity of all Persons, is represented by its own pillar."
