Peacebuilders Project for Primary School Students

Mercy Day 2018 Nonviolence Project for Secondary School Students

Accompanied by faculty members, students visit local families to talk about peace, share a blessing and leave a gift of holy water.  Each family is also invited to come to the school later for a student performance. The full project is described in this letter to faculty from Ali Botto, coordinator of catechesis, and can be adapted to meet the needs and locality of your school.
