Mercy Center launches campaign to honor Sister Carol

Sister Carol’s exceptional leadership has changed the lives of many in our community. She has served the City by the Sea loyally and is set to retire in the near future.

The Mercy Center Board of Trustees has announced the Sister Carol Ann Henry Founder’s Campaign, an opportunity for the community to join the organization in carrying on her mission and vision to making meaningful change in Asbury Park. Funds will support Mercy Center’s programs, including Emergency Services, the Family Resource Center and Sisters Academy of NJ.  To learn more about Sister Carol’s story, hear testimonials of her impact and obtain details on the Founder’s Campaign, please visit

Mary Beth Radke, Chair of Mercy Center Board of Trustees, is confident that Mercy Center will build upon her vision of empowering, enriching and educating the people the agency serves. “Sister Carol has had an extraordinary journey,” said Radke. “We have all been blessed and are grateful for the all-encompassing ministry she started. We thank Sister Carol for answering God’s call and we will continue to do God’s work that we have witnessed throughout her 39 years of service.”

The Mercy Center Board of Trustees will announce Sister Carol’s successor upon the completion of their search.
