Communications & Multimedia

“For we learn who we are, indeed we continue to create who we are, by the stories we tell.”

Carol Wheeler RSM,
Catherine: A Reflection on Values from the Mercy Tradition

Storytelling is an essential part of both Catholic and Mercy Tradition. The annals of the early foundations, and the many letters written by Catherine McAuley provide insight to the significance of communication in building community, of sharing stories, and in connecting with those outside the community to both educate and create support for the work of Mercy.

The ministry of Communications is significant in telling our contemporary stories, in providing information about the work of ministry within ISMAPNG and to share this work with the local, national and international communities of which we are part.

Communications is also an essential tool to providing education, raising awareness and creating dialogue around issues such as injustice and poverty and in giving voice to those most vulnerable. Today, communications are undertaken in a wide range of print and electronic media, websites, e-news bulletins and social media presence which provide a variety of platforms for engagement in spreading the message and work of Mercy.
