Mercy Home bid farewell to the MercyWorks class of 2018-2019 following their year of service at the MercyWorks closing ceremony on Wednesday, June 26. Mercy Home coworkers, including Fr. Scott Donahue, family, and friends gathered for a farewell Mass, dinner, and program to celebrate and honor the 13 MercyWorkers who committed to a year of personal, professional, and spiritual growth at Mercy Home.
The evening began with a Mass in our chapel, where Fr. Scott shared his gratitude to our volunteers.
“I hope for the past year that you’ve been told enough times how appreciated you are,” Fr. Scott said. “I’m sure that came from our coworkers, I’m sure that came from community members as you gathered, but from our young people, sometimes it’s tough for them to say thank you or let you know how appreciated you are. It may have happened during the year but trust me as I say you’ve had a powerful impact on the young people entrusted to our care.”
Following Mass, the evening continued with a celebratory dinner, where honorees, guests, and coworkers enjoyed a delicious pasta dinner.
