Immaculate Heart High School’s annual Mary’s Day celebration marked the Los Angeles high school’s 110 years. Amidst the singing and dancing April 29, students and faculty focused on ways to renew the world.

Organizers chose to emphasize the Jubilee Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, through the event theme “Mary, Mother of Mercy.”

“So many people are suffering in this world, and our call is to lift them up with love and mercy,” said Father Frank Mendoza, pastor of St. Finbar Church in Burbank, who presided at the Mary’s Day Mass. “Mary, our mother of mercy, serves as our example.”
