A Brief History

The Franciscan Sisters Daughters of Mercy had their beginnings in the small village of Pina, Mallorca, Spain September 14, 1856.

Our Congregation was founded by Rev. Mariano Ribas de Pina and his youngest sister, Josefa Ribas de Pina. Both brother and sister were born into this noble family of the island of Mallorca.
