"The MercyCare Story - For the Good of the Mission"

Thanks to author Marilyn Beresford, the stories behind MercyCare have been captured to be able to be shared with the community. 

The book’s focus is three-fold. Firstly, it records a long and exceptional record of service to those suffering disadvantage and marginalisation in the Western Australian community. Secondly, it looks at the role played by the laity in the Perth Congregation’s institutions for over 150 years. This role became more intense over the years and culminated in the transfer of the Sisters’ health and community services to the new lay-led MercyCare. Finally, it gives an account of the way in which MercyCare has developed into an organisation for the 21st century.
