The works of mercy are charitable actions by which we come to the aid of our neighbor in his spiritual and bodily necessities. The Corporal Works of Mercy are found in the teachings of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat all others, as if they were Christ in disguise.
Below are the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy:
7 Corporal Works of Mercy
- 1. Feed the hungry
- 2. Give drink to the thirsty
- 3. Shelter the homeless
- 4. Visit the sick
- 5. Visit the prisoners
- 6. Bury the dead
- 7. Give alms to the poor
Among all these, giving alms to the poor is one of the chief witnesses to fraternal charity: it is also a work of justice pleasing to God. (Catechism #2447)35For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, 36naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.(Matthew 25:35-36)

Religious Education Program
The mission of Saint John XXIII Religious Education Program is to assist parents in their efforts to give the precious gift of the Catholic faith to their children. We hope to show our children that they are an important part of our faith community.
"How beautiful are the feet of those who bring [the] good news!"
Thus faith comes from what is heard and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
(Romans 10:15; 17)
