Darkness Into Light was held on the 6th of May @ 4.15am.  The students from the Mercy who were participating in the John Paul II Awards were involved for the last number of weeks with pre-registration for the event and promoting the event around the school.  In total, the students raised over €900 from students in the school and helped to raise thousands for Pieta House.  The students wanted this to be part of their work for their John Paul II Awards as there is a House located in the town of Tuam and the students realise how important it is to both their own and the wider community.
