Not So Random Acts of Kindness Offering

A few months ago we introduced our “Not So Random Acts of
Kindness” Campaign. Since then, we’ve covered the wall of our
Mercy Room with accounts of our discipleship. Join us next
Sunday at the 10 AM Mass as we present these acts to God
through a ceremonial burning. If you have not yet had the chance
to submit all of your acts of kindness, it’s not too late! Simply
place them in the basket in the Mercy Room prior to next
Sunday’s 10 AM Mass. Slips are available by the basket.

Moving forward in this “Year of Mercy” we will continue to
collect and display your acts of kindness in the Mercy Room. To
keep this momentum moving forward, we invite you to also
submit any acts of kindness bestowed upon you. Has someone
gone out of their way to help you, to help carry you through a
difficult time, or simply done something to brighten your day?
This is the perfect opportunity to reflect on this blessing and give
thanks.

We will continue to post acts of kindness, both given and
received, in our Mercy Room, and offer them up to God on a
regular basis throughout the year. Join us as we serve as a beacon
of God’s light one ‘Act of Kindness’ at a time.
