School Activity: Saint Kateri Habitat

Vegetable gardens, milkweed, chicken coops – our MESA schools engage in many creative and Earth-friendly practices to help students learn about stewardship and sustainability, hallmarks of the Mercy Critical Concern for Earth. These efforts can help your school earn distinction as a Saint Kateri Habitat. You can learn about the qualifications to become a Saint Kateri Habitat here.

The program is named in honor of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, the patron saint of Native Americans, First Nations Peoples, ecology and the environment.

School Activity: Mercy Monarch Milkweed Project

Become part of the Mercy Monarch Milkweed Project by creating a milkweed garden site on the monarch butterfly’s migratory path. Your site should include nectar and milkweed plants and be free of pesticides. You can then register your garden with Mercy Ecology, Inc. and receive a sign for your garden to identify it as part of the Mercy Monarch Habitat Network.

Here are a few ways in which you can take part:
  1. Share how your school community is embracing the Mercy Critical Concerns and Works of Mercy on social media using the hashtag #MakeMercyReal.
