We invite you to use the songs, prayers and themes of the ritual in your own local celebration:
- in your chapel, prayer space or cemetery to remember deceased Sisters, Associates, partners-in-Mercy and all who have shared God's compassionate mercy with those in need in your local area
- of your local story of mercy pressed into stones by a water hole, lake, river or waterfall
- of our common home in your garden, local park or place of beauty, renewing your commitment to care for Earth in this Season of Creation
- of all women and children who have been educated in your local schools, colleges, universites and other ministries
