Fr. Vinnie inaugurated and blessed our Door of Mercy, a door we don’t simply pass through but “pass over,” from darkness to light, from sin to grace, from brokenness to healing. God’s love is always available to us.
Parishioners are invited to record Acts of Mercy they perform or they witness or read about. Going on a service trip, repairing a broken relationship, offering assistance to someone, any “Revolution of Tenderness” can be recorded anonymously.
Fr. Vinnie will refer to the Book throughout the Year. As we focus on our personal and communal need for the conversion of our hearts and actions, upcoming events are being planned to support us; all are welcome!
