Pope Francis has declared 2015-2016 a Jubilee Year of Mercy. He hopes that the year will be "steeped in mercy, so that we can go out to every man and woman, bringing the goodness and tenderness of God! May the balm of mercy reach everyone, both believers and those far away, as a sign that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst."
From Father Randy:
One way to discover God’s mercy is in prayer. Open your heart and mind to God and say, "Lord show me that you are merciful.” or you want to say, "Lord Jesus, have mercy on me.” God wants us to know that he is merciful so I am confident that if you ask God, you will get an answer. You can pray at home in your favorite place or you can also come to Church and pray. We are open all day and in the eve, or you may want to come during the time of adoration: Saturdays from 8-9 am and Mondays from 12-1 pm.
"Would you like a daily short reflection on God’s Mercy? If so, download the free application on your phone: 365 daily meditations for the Year of Mercy. Beside the meditations, there are prayers from Pope Francis, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and daily scripture quotes. What a great way to get into Gods spirit of mercy.

St. Ann School held a Grandparent's/Special Person day. We prayed together, we did family crafts together. We played a game using new technology to listen to old songs. God has blessed us with Grandparents to help us learn that life is fun and God's love is never ending.
