Spirit of Mercy Day Mass

Come celebrate the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy in Chicago 175 years to the day!

Each September, we celebrate a blend of Mass of the Holy Spirit, traditionally celebrated at the start of each school year to invoke the blessing of the Spirit of Wisdom upon the academic community, and Mercy Day, the patronal feast of the Sisters of Mercy whose educational work began in September 1827 in Dublin, Ireland, and continues today at SXU and other institutions around the world. This year, we celebrate on the anniversary of the day that the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Chicago 175 years ago.
