Mercy Living Center North Celebrates 45 Years

"Together in God's Mission of Mercy" is a new communiqué of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers that brings together Pope Francis' call for a Jubilee Year of Mercy in the Catholic Church with Maryknoll's 104 years of mission work in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the U.S. During the Jubilee Year of Mercy, all Catholics, as missionary disciples, will proclaim God's love and mercy.

From December 8, 2015, the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council, through November 20, 2016, the end of the liturgical year and Feast of Christ the King, the Catholic Church around the world will celebrate this jubilee year and all Catholics will receive a special blessing and pardon from God.

The Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers will celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy through the publication of magazine and online articles, the introduction of new titles from its Orbis Books division, and with prayer and mission programs around the world. Headquartered north of New York City, Maryknoll also has been part of the Los Altos community since the 1920s. The local Maryknoll Society residence is near the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve that borders Los Altos and Cupertino.

Everyone is encouraged to share examples of personal mercy moments with Maryknoll magazine and Revista Maryknoll. All submissions will be reviewed and select mercy moments will be published throughout the jubilee year. Mercy moments also can be posted to a special Maryknoll Mercy Moments web page.

Writers can submit mercy moments that they have witnessed, acts of mercy that they have offered to others, or moments when someone has provided them with an act of kindness. Many of the mercy moments will be shared by the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers through Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, and displayed in the Maryknoll Museum of Living Mission at the Maryknoll Mission Center in New York.
