Learn to Practice the Works of Mercy

Click here for a flyer to help you learn about the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy and to keep track of them. Each time you do an act of mercy or donate to a cause that supports these works of mercy, you can make a mark on your flyer.

At the end of the Jubilee Year add up the total and turn in to us. We will make a total for the whole parish and publish the results so we can see the effect we can have in the world!
