Year of Mercy Project
Beginning in the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, the Franciscans of Sacred Heart have been raising money to dig wells in Africa. Remembering that one of the Corporal Works of Mercy is “to give drink to the thirsty,” we hope to relieve the suffering of people  in the Democratic Republic of Congo where Fr. Damien Isabell, OFM, has been working for over 30 years.

Your contribution to our Year of Mercy Project will help to provide wells which will give the people of the DRC better access to safe drinking water.

For pictures of this life-changing project, see Fr. John's blog on this site.
