Dear Disciples of Mercy,

As we journey through the blessed Season of Advent and begin the Jubilee Year of Mercy, I am writing to ask your assistance in promoting participation in our schedule of Mercy Months and Videos, as well as the many other Year of Mercy opportunities. Here’s the information you need now and for the coming months!

January Year of Mercy Announcements
Below my signature you will find the Year of Mercy announcements for January. Please publish this information in all of your parish communications!

Schedule of Mercy Months
Every month of the Year of Mercy has a designated Work of Mercy with related Mercy Actions. You can find that simple schedule HERE >>.
Please encourage your leaders and members to actively practice the monthly mercy works and actions.

Monthly Mercy Videos
Archbishop Listecki has designated Fr. Ken Omernick as the “Missionary of Mercy” for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. On the first of every month, you can access a video of Fr. Ken teaching about that month’s Work of Mercy by going HERE >>. Starting December 2015, please use your parish communications to link your leaders and members to these videos each month.

Mercy Pilgrimages
Pope Francis encourages us to make pilgrimages during the Year of Mercy. Starting in January, please invite people to join the Archbishop on his pilgrimages to sites that practice the Corporal Works of Mercy. These pilgrimages correspond to the months when these Works are the designated focus. For a complete schedule, go HERE >>.

Please also encourage your leaders and members to make pilgrimages to the 10 Archdiocesan “Holy Door Pilgrimage Sites.” For a complete listing, go HERE >>.

Information for Immigrants:

President Obama announced a plan for Executive Action that could affect up to 4.9 million undocumented immigrants, including thousands of families in Wisconsin. Catholic Charities Legal Services for Immigrants has several great resources for people who need more information about the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the Deferred Action for Parents of American’s and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program.

First, Catholic Charities has written a single page “What You Need to Know about Executive Action” in both English and Spanish. These are available here.

Second, Catholic Charities has links to resources for filing taxes as DAPA applicants would be required to pay taxes. It is very important for people to file their federal and state income tax returns correctly. If someone owes back taxes, they should pay them as soon as possible. If you earn less than $53,000 a year, you can use a VITA Clinic. Volunteers trained by the IRS will prepare your taxes, correctly and for free. Find a VITA clinic at irs.treasury.gov/freetaxprep or call 1-800-906-9887.

Finally, Legal Services for Immigrants has started a Facebook page and they are posting updates and additional information almost daily. This is available here.

Please share these resources with people in your parish who will find them helpful.

May the Holy Spirit Guide the Synod

Thousands of Catholics over the course of the past eighteen months studied, discussed and discerned the needs of the local Catholic Church. This past weekend, led by the Holy Spirit, approximately 500 delegates and representatives from parishes and other Catholic organizations from across the archdiocese met to discern those needs and vote on what they felt were the highest priorities.

The voting results and outcomes of the Synod are outlined and available on the archdiocesan website.

In September, Archbishop Listecki will release a Synodal Declaration based on the outcomes of the work of the past year and a half, as well as on the fruits of this past weekend’s Synod. The Declaration will outline his pastoral priorities for the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and will guide our work as a Church for the next decade and beyond.

More information about the Synod >>

Here is the link for videos that debuted at the Synod.
