St Catharine’s Convent, Edinburgh is a Mercy Centre offering Mercy Spirituality, hospitality, support, prayer and friendship to the homeless and the very many support groups who meet there regularly.

It is an oasis for all in need.

Since Mercy is as simple as sharing bread, as wide as Loving people into wholeness, as challenging as working for global justice, we try to make these concepts a living reality at St Catharine’s by offering the broken and marginalised of Edinburgh and beyond a wide range of services.
