Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. (Nelson Mandela)
A warm welcome to the new academic year 2017 -18! Our founding father Saint Chavara Kuriakose Elias foresaw the immense possibilities of education when he envisioned the Congregation of Mother of Mercy. The most effective weapon to bring about positive changes in the world is undoubtedly education .This is best achieved through the education of women. As the saying goes, educating a woman means educating a family which, in turn, will foster an enlightened nation.

Mercy College, Palakkad, a women’s college, affiliated to the University of Calicut, was established in the year 1964. It was “a dream come true”- the dream of the St. Chavara Elias and the Carmelite Missionary Fr. Leopold Beccardo who bequeathed to us the noble mission of dedicating ourselves for the upliftment and Christian formation of our fellowmen, especially of women and children.This Institution is administered by the Jai Christo CMC.
