During the Gold Rush Days of 1857, the Sisters of Mercy came to Sacramento to care for the children of the miners and to serve the sick and the homeless.

In those early days, the Sisters purchased land in the heart of the city to build a school. Passage of the "Capital Bill", in 1860 resulted in the sale of that property to the State for its original price of $4,850. This is now the site of the State Capital Building.

The Sisters of Mercy have made significant contributions to the history and progress of the State of California. Their mission to care for the sick, the poor, the elderly and the uneducated continues today throughout the world.
