Author Kerry Weber speaks at Mount Mercy University on Mercy Day Sept. 24

Mount Mercy University welcomes author Kerry Weber to campus in the Chapel of Mercy on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. as part of the university’s Mercy and Mission Week festivities.

Weber, a lay Catholic, Mercy associate, and managing editor of America (a national Catholic magazine), set out to weave the Corporal Works of Mercy into her commitment-packed life and emerged with ways to balance breadlines and deadlines in the city that never sleeps. This meaningful journey of self-discovery is documented in her book, Mercy in the City: How to Feed the Hungry, Give Drink to the Thirsty, Visit the Imprisoned, and Keep Your Day Job.

“Mount Mercy is thrilled to host Kerry Weber during Mercy and Mission Week on Mercy Day, Sept. 24,” explained Sr. Shari Sutherland, executive director for mission and ministry. “Mercy Day is a world-wide celebration of Catherine McAuley’s opening of the House of Mercy on Sept. 24, 1828 in Dublin, Ireland and her work with the poor, sick and uneducated. It’s the perfect day to welcome Ms. Weber’s discussion on how she incorporated volunteerism into her daily life.”

The public is welcome to attend this free event. Seating is limited. For more information about Mercy and Mission Week, click here.
