The Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy, also known as the Mercedarian Friars, was founded in and is an international community of priests and brothers, who live a life of prayer and communal fraternity based on the Rule of Saint Augustine and the Constitutions of the Order. From this life flows the apostolic work of the Order that seeks to carry on the work of our founder, Saint Peter Nolasco, who in imitation of Jesus the Redeemer, offered even his life for those Christians in need of redemptive love. Peter Nolasco's mission is just as relevant today as it was years ago. Is the Lord calling you to walk in his footsteps, along the path of Redemptive Charity?
