Xaverian H.S.

To become more merciful this year I have been taking time out of my daily schedule to give back to kids in a basketball organization where I do drills with kids and teach them how to play basketball.

I am living out the Year of Mercy by developing more patience, admitting to my mistakes, asking forgiveness and forgiving others.

Fontbonne Hall Academy

My family and I observe the Year of Mercy by incorporating patience and reflection throughout each day. When the stress level is high, we suppress it by asking God for patience in our hearts, while always reflecting on our true values and intentions.

Observing the Year of Mercy, my school raises money to donate to the less fortunate. Students also donate to help the school.
