Holy Year of Mercy
From Advent 2015 to the end of the liturgical year in 2016, the Catholic church is celebrating a Jubilee Year of Mercy. Pope Francis is encouraging the entire Church to meditate on God's mercy in their lives and to share that mercy with others. The students of Good Shepherd Academy decorated the entrance door to the Academy and passed through it in prayer and song. They are planning activities on the Spiritual Corporal works of mercy. The students are beginning the corporal mercy of clothing by filling a Mitten Tree with scarves gloves, mittens and hats for children in a nearby Children's Center.
