Year of Mercy – Shelter the Homeless Act of Mercy
A Souper Challenge!
The Liturgy Council decided that in order to fulfill the Corporal Act of Mercy, “Shelter the Homeless”, they needed to devise a campaign to help the homeless in Manchester. The Council announced in Mass at Saint Mary Crowned Church and then at school in October that the parish and pupils should collect, (harvest!), tins of soup and tomatoes and transport them to Cornerstone Centre for the Homeless in Manchester. Little did they believe they would collect nearly 400 tins!
