NEW ULM – To celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, Catholics from all corners of the diocese gathered at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm for a Day of Mercy celebration on April 3, Divine Mercy Sunday. As part of the day’s events, faithful of all ages took part in a corporal work of mercy. The diocese partnered with Catholic Relief Service’s Helping Hands project to package 10,000 meals during a three-hour period. The meals are destined to feed the hungry in Burkina Faso, a desperately poor West African nation.
