Celebrating Mercy Week 2017

The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) will hold its annual Mercy Week from Sunday, Sept. 17 to Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017. Throughout the week, each day is dedicated to one of the University’s core values and included activities led by members of the USJ community.

Ending with Mercy Day of Service, this tradition began in 2005. USJ students, faculty, staff, and administrators dedicated this day to sharing the University’s Mercy tradition with the Greater Hartford area through various works of service.
