HORAN, Mary Austin, superior of the Sisters of Mercy, born in Ireland in 1820; died in New York city, 14 June, 1874. She entered the Convent of mercy, Dublin, Ireland, under the auspices of Catharine McCauley, founder of the order, and came to New York in 1846, at the request of Archbishop Hughes, with Mother Agnes O'Connor, whom she assisted in founding the institution of mercy in that city. She was the first mistress of novices in St. Catharine's convent, New York, and trained all its early members. She was active in establishing the different works of the institution, the visitation of the sick and dying poor of the prisons and hospitals, and the House of mercy for the protection of young girls. She also built St. Joseph's industrial institute for children.
