Catholic high school students work to end bullying ‘Piece-by-Peace’

This is the graphic design of an award-winning board game called “Piece-by-Peace” created by three seniors at Mater Dei High School in Evansville, Ind. Each of the colors represents either a form of bullying, facts about bullying or information about combating bullying.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Austin Bowen, Noah Harrison and Michaela Kunkler, seniors at Mater Dei High School in Evansville, have ideas about how to combat bullying. Those ideas have helped them each land a full scholarship to the University of Evansville.

The trio recently won the university's High School Changemaker Challenge; the grand prize is a full scholarship to the university for each member of the winning team.

POPE’S MESSAGE | Reflections on mercy over, but compassion must live on

Pope Francis touched a rosary at his general audience Nov. 30 in Paul VI hall at the Vatican. The pope concluded a series of catechesis talks on the Works of Mercy by reflecting on burying the dead and praying for the living and the dead.

VATICAN CITY — The Year of Mercy and its series of papal reflections may be over, but compassion and acts of mercy must continue and become a part of everyone's daily lives, Pope Francis said.

"Let us commit ourselves to praying for each other so that the corporal and spiritual works of mercy increasingly become our way of life," he said Nov. 30 at his general audience in the Vatican's Paul VI hall.
