Saint Xavier University congratulates the new leaders of the Sisters of Mercy

The Saint Xavier University (SXU) community congratulates the new elected leadership team for the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas: Sister Patricia McDermott, president, who is serving her second term as the institute’s president; Sister Patricia Flynn, vice president; and councilors, Sister Judith Frikker, Sister Áine O’Connor and sister Anne Marie Miller.

The team begins their term Aug. 1.

Saint Xavier University in Chicago was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1846. The Sisters of Mercy of the Americas’ tradition of compassionately serving others is an inspiration to Saint Xavier’s mission to “educate men and women to search for truth, to think critically, to communicate effectively, and to serve wisely in support of human dignity and the common good.”
