The First World Day of the Poor is November 19, 2017
 
 
On November 19, 2017, we will commemorate the first World Day of the Poor, announced by Pope Francis at the end of his 2015-16 Jubilee Year of Mercy. Our friends at Mercy International Association have graciously provided resources to support the nine days of prayer for the poor. These resources are translated in English and Spanish, and include:

  • An Invitation to Join
  • A Prayer and Reflection by Sister Mary C. Sullivan, RSM 


You may also read Pope Francis’ message for the first World Day of the Poor. It's titled " Let us love, not with words but with deeds.

Questions about the commemoration can be directed to Anne Walsh, Communications Director, MIRP, at mercyenews@mercyinternational.ie.
 
 
 Mark your calendars for these upcoming events and stay tuned for more details.
