On December 8, 2015 Pope Francis declared a Year of Mercy for the Church. What does this mean for us? What is Mercy? Is God’s Mercy really available to me? How can we show others the mercy of God? Come to the One Night Mission to reflect on these questions and find answers for our daily lives. Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
