Celebrating 175 years

Led by Sister Ursula Frayne, these pioneering Sisters of Mercy wasted no time getting to work, opening new schools and caring for people from all walks of life. Together, these remarkable women forged a legacy that would have a lasting impact on the Western Australian community.

175 years later, MercyCare is proud to continue their work, supporting Western Australian families and communities to thrive.
