holy week mercy Missions april 17-20, 2019

What's this about?


If you've been ready to share your Catholic faith with others in a dynamic way through the corporal and spiritual works of mercy precisely during the days we live -by Our Lord's side - his Passion, Death and Resurrection, this is your chance...


---


A Holy Week missionary will:

touch the lives of others through simple acts of mercy - words of hope and love as they encounter a homeless person, a kind smile to a stranger in need, feeding the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, visiting the sick; their mere welcoming presence will often spark in the lonely passer-by the desire to discover to Christ, again or for the first time...
