Pittsburgh Mercy Health System
If we love God, we will undoubtedly love our neighbor also; they are as cause and effect.Catherine McAuley, 1778-1841, founder of the Sisters of Mercy
McAuley Ministries is named in honor of Catherine McAuley who founded the Sisters of Mercy in Ireland in 1831. We serve as a catalyst for change, committing resources and working collaboratively to promote healthy, safe, and vibrant communities.
Serving Pittsburgh Neighborhoods
We continue the legacy of the Sisters of Mercy by focusing grant-making on the Pittsburgh neighborhoods traditionally served by the Sisters—the Hill District, Uptown, and West Oakland—and the sponsored ministries of the Sisters in southwestern Pennsylvania.
Our Grant-making Background
McAuley Ministries, the grant-making arm of the Pittsburgh Mercy Health System, was established in 2008 to administer the proceeds from the sale of Mercy Hospital.

To commemorate five years of grant-making in the community, McAuley Ministries produced a video report to highlight some of the grants we awarded in that first five years. We invite you to view the report.
