Serra KCK missed opportunities for Works of Mercy?

Although the Year of Mercy will soon draw to a close, we are still called to perform works of mercy every day of our lives.

Jim Conrad has a reflection for us to consider

While attending one of the deceased Serrans’ funeral it dawned on me that Jesus is giving us an opportunity to participate in the Spiritual Works of Mercy. Considering Pope Francis declared year of Mercy we are really blessed. How often are we visiting the sick and burying the dead? How often are we obtaining these Blessings? How often are we bringing a smile to the face of a Brother Serran who hasn’t had many visitors?

Reminder: C.O.R.E Golf Outing and Dinner Monday Sept. 19
