Mercy is alive in the archdiocese! Although the Year of Mercy officially concluded in November 2016, parishes, schools and other groups throughout the archdiocese have continued their efforts to perform and promote the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.
In our role as a resource to you, the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center presents the “Mercy In Motion” campaign to aid in the continued promotion of the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.
This campaign is intended to supplement your current efforts, if you so choose.
1. LIVING LIVES OF MERCY
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offers practical ideas and insights for living a life of mercy. View their pages on the Corporal Works and the Spiritual Works.

3. SOCIAL MEDIA RESOURCES
On the first Wednesday of each month, archdiocesan social media posts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) will feature a Work of Mercy. Each post will be accompanied by the #MercyInMotion hashtag. Archdiocesan posts will appear in the evenings to maximize viewership. We encourage others to share the posts in the hours/days that follow and be part of the #MercyInMotion movement.We have provided the content below if you prefer to schedule posts on your own rather than share the archdiocesan posts.
