Year of Mercy coming alive in Clear Lake

St. Pat’s youth bring bags home that help engage families

CLEAR LAKE — Mercy has become a family affair at St. Patrick Parish in Clear Lake. Since February, children enrolled in the church’s faith formation program have been provided with take-home bags that help them actively engage their families in the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

Each week, one student per grade in the parish’s first through 10th grade faith formation classes takes home a Year of Mercy bag for their family. Inside each bag is a list of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, a Year of Mercy prayer for the family to pray together and an explanation of what the Year of Mercy is all about. There is also a sticker booklet included in the bags for those with younger children.
