Circles of Mercy extends its sincerest condolences to Ed LaRow and his family, on the passing of his wife Nancy LaRow. Her dedication to Circles of Mercy as its first executive director and to the works of mercy that she performed during her life, especially to those who are most vulnerable, are an example for all of us to emulate. Nancy after retiring continued to serve Circles as a member of its Board of Trustees. Ed please know that you and the LaRow family are in our prayers. Nancy was a good and faithful servant, may she rest in everlasting peace, Amen...

Circles of Mercy has an eighteen year tradition of providing services to the local Rensselaer Community, in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy and of their first sister, Catherine McAuley.

Our Mission
Drawing upon the Gospel and the spirit of Catherine McAuley, Circles of Mercy will improve the quality of life in the community by working to end the cycle of poverty, especially among women and women with children.

Animated by the Gospel and Catherine McAuley’s passion for the poor and underprivileged, we honor the dignity of each person. We offer hospitality and provide services, compassion, hospitality, stewardship, leadership and collaboration, with a special concern for the poor and disadvantaged without regard to a person’s religious affiliation, ethnicity or sexual orientation; which is performed in an effort to instill hope and empower individuals to reach their full potential.
