Pilgrimage to Parliament for the Homeless



On Tuesday afternoon St Mary’s College students and staff joined with the Sisters of Mercy

in a response to the ‘Call to Action’ during the ‘Year of Mercy’. Our witness at Parliament

was a place to stand together to express our hope as a people of Mercy, that shelter and

protection will be provided for all. Prayer, waiata and storytelling were shared. This was a

great opportunity to show support for those in need, as at St Mary’s College we reflect

Jesus’ Mercy in the Gospels, and seek to live out these values of respect, compassion,

justice, and concern for those who are vulnerable.
