Mission, Ministry & Service
The Office for Mission, Ministry and Service at Misericordia University serves the Mission of the University by making visible and effective our Mercy Charisms and Catholic Tradition. We seek to respond to the Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy through advocacy, education and action. We seek to reach out and respect persons of all faith backgrounds and traditions while inviting them to join us in our mission. We strive to seek and build a welcoming, inclusive community.
