Mercy Action Marianas, Ltd. (MAML) is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy which has helped many students on Guam.

MAML was established to ensure the continuance of the ministries of the South Central Community of the Sisters of Mercy on Guam.

It exists to support the works of Mercy that will foster human dignity, help finance students seeking a Catholic education, and provide for the quality of life of the aging and infirmed Sisters of Mercy. The Board of Directors believe in the inherent dignity of the human person and are dedicated to effect social change through education and compassionate service.

MAML grants the Catherine McAuley Scholarship to students of the schools on Guam which are administered by the Mercy Sisters: Academy of Our Lady of Guam, Bishop Baumgartner Memorial Catholic School, St. Anthony Catholic School, Santa Barbara Catholic School and the two Sis- ters of Mercy-sponsored Mercy Heights Nursery/ Kindergarten and Infant of Prague Nursery/Kindergarten.

MAML also extends scholarships to Saramen Chuuk Academy in the Diocese of the Carolines where one Mercy Sister is teaching.

A dinner gala took place May 2, 2014 at the Government House to help MAML raise funds for the Catherine McAuley Scholarship.
