Prayer of Mercy and Items to Donate

Dear Colleagues,
The Alumni Association will welcome more than 300 volunteer leaders back to campus for our annual Leadership Conference from April 14-16th.  On Thursday, April 14th, we will begin our conference with a Pilgrimage and Prayer of Mercy, leaving from the Morris Inn Ballroom a little before 8 p.m. and processing through the Doors of Mercy of the Basilica.  Our prayer will focus on the corporal works of mercy, and it will last approximately thirty minutes.  We welcome you and hope you can join us for this special prayer.

Additionally, we invite you to participate in this prayer by providing for a work of mercy to be done in South Bend. We are collecting donations to be used in social service agencies who are performing works of mercy. Linked is a list of current needs where you can sign up to provide one of these items (each item should cost around $10).

Please bring these items to the Eck Visitor Center welcome desk by noon on Friday, April 8. If you have any concerns or questions, contact me at

Thank you for considering our request,

Angie Appleby Purcell & Josh Noem
