Merciful Minis Return to Celtic Fest

                                      August 24, 2019

With the feeling of Fall in the air, Merciful Minis returned to the beautiful St. Joseph Park in Joliet for the annual Celtic Fest. Hundreds of people attended the event enjoying good food, live music, and games for young children.

Families were excited to hear the minis would be returning and were especially surprised when our beautiful Mercy dressed in her colorful unicorn attire in keeping with the spirit of the Gaelic theme. Children couldn’t wait to have their pictures taken with a REAL unicorn and our sweet Falabella Mini horse appeared to love the adulation.

Families showed their appreciation by visiting our display of beautiful hand made jewelry donated by a friend of our therapy program. One of our Junior Handlers helped to sell the items and answer questions about the work of Merciful Minis. The support was overwhelming!

The minis will be concluding their 2019 schedule with several more fall visits to area centers. Look for the minis jewelry at Homer Glenn Library craft show on September 21 . Proceeds of our sales go directly to support the health care our miniature therapy horses.

We are a non profit organization and all donations can help when filing government taxes.


Thank You

Every visit brings thanks and appreciation.  Often a special moment passes between one of the minis and a resident or student.  A smile, soft touch and even a song.  Merciful Minis was formally thanked at a recent Board of Education meeting in school district Orland Park 135 for bringing Hawk and Rae to the extended school year program.  Not only did the kids create a beautiful card, they bought treats for the minis to enjoy for a job well done.  Thank you.
