For more than 100 years, the Sisters of Mercy at St Patrick’s College have dedicated their lives and their energies to caring for, encouraging and educating the young women of Queensland and the Pacific region. The values and traditions of the mercy ethos, as inspired and modelled by Catherine McAuley, continue to inspire the daily life of our contemporary, independent Catholic school community.
