on the election of Sr. Christine McCann, R.S.M.
as the President of the Mid-Atlantic Region for the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas

I offer warm congratulations and prayerful support to Sister Christine McCann, R.S.M., on being elected President of the newly created Mid-Atlantic Region of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

This is an historic time for the Sisters of Mercy who follow in the path of Mother Catherine McAuley, their foundress, who taught the importance of compassionate service and outreach to the sick, the poor and the uneducated. Dedicated leadership will be an important element of the consolidation into the new community. Sister Christine McCann's experience as Regional President of the Sisters of Mercy in Merion and as Board Chair for Mercy Health System will serve the Sisters of Mercy well as they enter a new chapter in their history of service to those in need.
