A Beautiful Golden Mass!
On December 17, 2021, Mercy celebrated Golden Mass, a long-standing and beloved tradition. During the liturgy, Christmas baskets containing food and gifts for local families in need (which were stacked around the altar and revealed during Mass) were blessed. After the liturgy, and in true Mercy fashion, students, faculty, staff, and families loaded the baskets into their cars and delivered them to sponsored families. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance at Mass was limited to high school students. Middle schoolers took part in a special Golden Prayer Service yesterday where the gift bags they collected for Head Start Preschool were blessed. More photos can be found at www.mercyhs.com/photos.
