PILGRIMAGE OF MERCY
We invite you and your family to join us on a special Pilgrimage of Mercy beginning September 2020 through January 2021!
The Pilgrimage of Mercy is a new endeavor for our parishioners at St. Thomas More to encourage us to be more conscious of the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy and incorporate them into our lives. During this five month pilgrimage, our dream is to inspire you to bring the loving grace of our Lord to those we meet throughout our daily lives. It is our hope that you will experience the joy of bringing joy to others.
To begin your pilgrimage as a family, pick up a passport from the Parish Office, from the Information Cove or request one to be sent to you using the form below. We will also provide a Works of Mercy card each month as a guide to help you to put Mercy into action. The card is similar to a Bingo card, and as you complete a suggested act of mercy, simply X through the square. The Works of Mercy card will be available here on our website under the ‘Downloadable Content’ tab, in the Parish Office and in the Information Cove.
Youth 17 and under are welcome to have their own passport and may use the monthly Youth Works of Mercy cards.
Each month, for the 5 months of our pilgrimage, bring your Works of Mercy card and we will stamp you passport once you have completed 5 squares in a row on your monthly Work of Mercy card. You may have your passport stamped in the Parish Office during the week or at the Welcome Desk before attending Mass on the weekends.
Passports stamped for all five months will be entered into a drawing to join Monsignor Tom on a pilgrimage to Chimayo, NM and other sites in Colorado and New Mexico in April 2021. (Please note: the prize includes travel and accommodations for up to four people in one hotel room, with two queen beds.) A separate drawing will be held for our youth (17 and under) for a special activity with Monsignor Tom.
So, pick up your passport, download or pick up your September Works of Mercy card and join us as we begin our pilgrimage to make a difference in the world with simple acts of Mercy. God bless you!
