Join Us

The Mercy Center for Women will celebrate our 31st Annual Women Making History event on Monday, March 25th at the Mercyhurst University Performing Arts Center in Erie.

This event recognizes women in Erie County for the countless ways they impact and influence the lives in our community. They serve quietly and mirror the image of the Mercy Center mission.
