Extra Attention on Mercy

The Catholic University of America’s law school and campus ministry also have initiatives already in place that will receive extra attention for the holy year.

CUA’s chaplain and director of campus ministry, Conventual Franciscan Father Jude DeAngelo, said the school is intent on continuing the momentum from Pope Francis’ historic visit to the campus in September.

“We want people to understand that Our Lord is indeed rich in mercy, and we’re hoping for continued conversion of life among us all,” he said.

The CUA Columbus School of Law has an outreach where volunteers help homeless families find emergency shelter during cold or severe weather.

Other volunteer initiatives include helping the homeless to claim legal rights to shelter, low-income workers prepare tax returns and immigrants navigate the citizenship process.
