The results are in from the Mercy Summit in Council Bluffs last weekend and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive. Of those attending, 100 percent said the morning gathering was good, very good or excellent. Check out pictures here.

This Saturday, the summit will be offered in the Des Moines metro area. Now is your chance to register. Be affirmed in your ministry and see God working among us through your effort to extend mercy to others. 

The Mercy Summit is free and open to all all volunteers who help at food pantries, clothing closets, and hospitals, those who advocate for the most vulnerable, visit the sick, help refugees and immigrants, and cook lunches for families experiencing funerals. It is open to those whose job calls them to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

The Mercy Summit in the Des Moines metro area is this Saturday, Oct. 29, from 8 a.m. to noon at St. Pius X Parish in Urbandale. Come hear Cindy Shaw, of Emmaus House, and Bishop Richard Pates as they affirm and encourage those in ministries of mercy. Learn how to walk with those experiencing difficulty and conmnect your ministry wtih your relationship with God.
