Mercy and Kindness Tree

The Year of Mercy doesn’t end at St. Cecilia Cathedral School!  As a follow-up to the Year of Mercy, each St. Cecilia student has selected an act of mercy or kindness that they will try to perform throughout the Advent season.  For some it is…. “pray for others” or “help a stranger feel comfortable.”  For others it is “be nice to my siblings,” “share toys,” or “be a good person to others.”  Each student designed an ornament for our school “Mercy and Kindness Tree” that tells what they plan to do during Advent.

     Hopefully each student is also working on earning some money by helping out at home or performing acts of kindness for their own family in order to purchase an item for our all school Advent Service Project – helping the Burmese refugees who are parishioners of St. Cecilia School.  Please see the attached letter to our students explaining the project and listing what each grade level is asked to contribute.
