On Dec 12, 2022, The Sisters of Mercy in Jamaica unveiled the Memorial Wall located on the grounds of the Alpha Mercy Historical Centre. The brainchild of Sister Theresa Lowe Chin, the Memorial Wall honours Sisters of Mercy who gave final vows and have worked in Jamaica.
The names include some that we already know and some that we will get to know better. Sisters of Mercy have worked in classrooms, with music programmes, doing social work, in the infirmary and in administration.
While Sisters of Mercy may have a much smaller community today than in years past, the new Memorial Wall reminds us that mercy is always a guiding light, even if there are no sisters physically present every moment.
