The Roundtable begins in the house built by Catherine McAuley, Mercy International Centre in Dublin, Ireland, and travels for its final days to Glendalough, a fifth century monastic city in County Wicklow. The Roundtable offers the opportunity to share presentations and discussions centered on how the heritage and values of the Sisters of Mercy inform the work of our teaching and administration.
The Carlow Roundtable is a conference that is comprised of 16 colleges and universities sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas through the Conference for Mercy Higher Education and was created for “the preservation and development of the core Catholic identity and mission of Mercy higher education in accord with the spirit, mission, and heritage of the Sisters of Mercy.” Inspired by their common Mercy heritage, participants will draw from their knowledge and experience to explore how their heritage and Catholic Social Teaching influences how and what we teach in these institutions of higher learning. The Carlow University Roundtable was conceived in May of 2007 as an opportunity for collaboration and collegial exchange among Mercy institutions where we return to our founding roots in Ireland.
