The Retreat Master

Mother Mary McGreevy entered the Religious Sisters of Mercy in 1961. The Religious Sisters of Mercy were founded in 1831 in Dublin, Ireland, by Venerable Catherine McAuley, with an apostolate founded upon the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Mother Mary is the Superior General of the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan, a new community that was approved by the Holy See in 1973, and that has convents in eighteen locations across the world, including in Jackson, Minnesota. Mother Mary has worked extensively for the renewal of religious life in the United States and in various other countries, and in the formation and development of her community. The community has Sisters in professional disciplines, including health care, with Sisters serving as physicians, nurses, psychologists, and social workers.
