Happy Mercy Day

On Saturday, September 24th, we celebrate Mercy Day, the anniversary of the opening of the first "House of Mercy" in Dublin, Ireland in 1827. The House of Mercy provided education and support services to women and children and was the first of thousands of similar Mercy ministries to open around the world, including Mercy Education Project.

MEP is forever grateful for all the support we receive from the Sisters of Mercy as well as the Mercy spirit that permeates all that we do.

Thank you to all the generous donors and supporters, including Mercy High School Farmington Hills and Trinity Health, who purchased school supplies for our Girls' After-School Program. Girl's programs start back-up on Monday and we are preparing 115 back-to-school packages for every girl in our program. Thank you for helping our students start this school year off right!

Winter Collection

Now through the beginning of December, Mercy Education Project is collecting NEW gifts to help our students celebrate the holiday season.  Donate on your own or organize a collection with your book club, church, or community group!

On Monday, September 12th, Mercy Education Project's Women's Educational Services started the fall semester of our Adult Basic Education and GED Preparatory classes. Classes were full as 65 new and returning students were welcomed back for another great school year.
