Our youth are joining in the excitement of the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis.
Grade 6 students are doing a year-long project. Each student has a cross. They are asked to do Works of Mercy, helping people over and above what they would normally do. Each week they do, they can glue a penny (or any item) on their crosses, front and back.
Grade 5 students received Year of Mercy t-shirts from their catechist. Wearing these shirts is a witness to their faith.
Grade 4 students took on a church project when they noticed that some people had put wads of gum under the pews. With plastics gloves, they took the time to clean it all off. “We hope people will know how yucky this was. Please help keep our church clean and beautiful.”
