MAST Purpose Statement (rev. June 2021)

To promote and support scholarship and theological reflection on Scripture, theology, spirituality, ethics, and related sciences undertaken by Sisters of Mercy around the world, our colleagues, and friends in order to serve the Church and the Institute, especially women. To this end the association encourages the publication of scholarly writing through the MAST Journal; the convening of an annual conference focused on issues of theological or spiritual concerns; and mutual support for its members engaged in scholarly pursuits through study, writing, teaching, and administration.
