Year Of Mercy Resources

Pope Francis declared 2016 as the Jubilee Year of Mercy. He encourages the young people to focus on one spiritual and corporal work of Mercy each month.

Every month, the ACYM team will be uploading resources that focuses on the different spiritual and corporal works of Mercy. These resources contain creative prayers, fun activities along with debrief points, a reflection tool, etc. We encourage youth group leaders to use these resources with their groups.
