St. Justin Martyr "Year Of Mercy" Activities:
January Mercy Festival:
The first St. Justn Martyr parish event in the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy declared by Pope Francis was the January Mercy Festival.
It was sponsored by the Jail Ministry Team of St. Justin Martyr Parish. It was held on January 23, in the Parish Hall. The January Mercy Festival generated support for Father Ron Cloutier (Head of Ministry to the Incarcerated of the Archdiocese of Galveston Houston).
The admission to the Festival was a book of Forever Stamps or $5. The meal was prepared by Knights of Columbus. It was the same meal that was served in jail that date. The entertainment was a great surprise provided by Deacon Gary and the parish ministers to the incarcerated. Apporximately 2,400 stamps were collected.
Sleeping Bags For The Homeless:
On December 30th 2015 St. Justin Martyr Parishioners distributed 35 Sleeping Bags to homeless personnel of downtown Houston as an act of chairty and mercy. Many of the homeless had been sleeping on the ground or card board boxes. They were very greatful to St. Justin for the sleeping bags and the merciful interest shown to them. It was a "learning experience" for the SJM parishioners and reminded them to "Give to others less fortunate in the Year of Mercy".

PRAYER OF THE CHALDEAN CATHOLIC PATRIARCH OF IRAQ:
O Lord, the plight of our country Iraq is deep, and the suffering of Christians is severe and frightening. Therefore, we ask You, O Lord, to spare our lives and to grant us patience and courage to continue our witness of Christian values with trust and hope. O Lord, peace is the foundation of life. Grant us the peace and stability that will enable us to live with each other without fear and anxiety and with dignity and joy. Glory be to you, O Lord, forever. Amen.
(Publication of this prayer has been approved and requested by Most Rev. Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston.)
