School Ministry

At Mercy Vocational High School, faith and service are integral parts of the learning experience. The School Ministry Office provides opportunities for students to encounter God through the celebration of the Mass, Prayer Services, and Retreats. Mercy students then answer the call to serve at various locations in the Philadelphia area. They put their faith in action by living out the Works of Mercy: feeding the homeless, clothing the naked, giving drink to the thirsty, among others.

In the spirit of Catherine McAuley, School Ministry helps the students and faculty build community around a common faith in a God of love and mercy. Each person plays a role in Ministry; without the support of one another, School Ministry would not be at the core of Mercy Vocational High School.
