Join Mercy schools in celebrating Black History!
Lord God, as we begin this month in celebration of Black History, help us to never forget that history and instill in all of us the willingness to share that history, our collective history, with our youth and others throughout the year. Guide us to find your wisdom so that we may live and love as one.
Mercy Education shares the following resource list here for year-round education on Black history, stories, and experiences for all Mercy schools. The Sisters of Mercy shared the following article "Celebrating the Contributions of Black Catholics" here.
