Sister Jacinta Dolan from the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy visit

27 March 2017

On Monday 13 March Sister Jacinta Dolan from the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy visited Mercy College with Caitlin Pfaffin the Mercy 5 Coordinator to give a presentation to Year 7 on the Charism of our foundress Catherine McAuley.

Sister Jacinta worked as an Art Teacher and lived in the old Convent in the Coolock Building for 17 years. During her visit Sister Jacinta was able to solve the mystery of naming the sisters in an old photo we have hanging in the office. One of the sisters in the photo was Sister Jacinta herself. 

We were blessed to have Sister Jacinta visit our College some 30 years since she last taught here at the College.  She was especially happy to visit our College Chapel where she used to pray and was also able to locate her old room which has now been converted into a textiles classroom.
