    The Sisters of Mercy statue is just outside and to the left of the Capitals north entrance. Mary Baptist Russell founded the Sisters of Mercy in CA and originally purchased the land for a school. Catherine McAuley was an orginal founder of the Sisters of Mercy and never visited the US. I know of no specific statue of her at the CA Capital.
