“Hands of Mercy” – Song for the Year of Mercy


Annie Carrett | Diocese of Broken Bay

The Senior Choir at St Bernard’s Catholic Primary School, Berowra Heights, has presented a new song called “Hands of Mercy” which has been sung at school Masses, and will feature as part of a special Year of Mercy Mass. Written by Patricia Smith, Music Co-ordinator at Ku-ring-gai Chase Parish, the song combines lyrics and meaningful actions to help young people participate in the Jubilee Year and understand what mercy means in everyday life and how to bring mercy to others. We can use our ‘hands of mercy’ to give life and love: to bring welcome, forgiveness, comfort, care, and healing; to give, share, and encourage.
