Eleison is a Greek which means Mercy.It is
the main virtue on which our movement is built upon;
we are built on the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Mercy
calls us to have compassion to the others by sharing their
pain with us. Mercy encourages us to practice what is preached
in the gospel. This we do by performing works of mercy like visiting
the sick, clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, giving drink to
the thirty, counsel the doubtful, comfort the afflicted, pray for
the living and the dead. With these works we are always able to suffer
together with those in pain.

Eleison youth movement is a students’ movement in primary and secondary
schools, colleges and universities around the world. Students practice
works of mercy locally in the school by engaging themselves in activities
like visiting sick students in the sick bays, buying eats for those without,
collecting a few items like books and pens for those without, hearted giving of
a little amount of money to the Eleison treasury, fellowshipping and bible study
with potential believers, voluntary cleaning around the premises and many more.
These works of mercy can also be performed outside the school environment
by collecting material among students for the sake of donating it as a school,
organizing talent show fundraising for the sick, volunteering to serve at a
nearby clinic or babies, shelter and much more.
