Welcome to Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish!
Together with Mary our Mother, our Catholic Community welcomes all to receive, live and share the Divine Mercy that comes from Jesus. We are a community of faith that thrives on the sacramental life of the Church. On behalf of the clergy, staff and parishioners of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, we welcome you to our family of faith. We truly hope that you allow us to serve you in whatever way we can, and we invite you to be a full and active participant in our parish. Please come and celebrate with us each week and make this community an extension of your family. Welcome Home!
“Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know You, a heart to seek You, wisdom to find You, conduct pleasing to You, faithful perseverance in waiting for You, and a hope of finally embracing You. Amen.”
Are you seeking to recover your friendship with God? Has it been a while since your last confession? No matter how long it has been or what your questions may be, you are invited to take advantage of one of the opportunities for Reconciliation offered in our parish. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is God’s gift to us so that any sin committed after Baptism can be forgiven. In confession we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God. It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in His presence and honestly acknowledge our sins, especially mortal sins. With absolution, we are reconciled to God and the Church.
Additional opportunities for Reconciliation during Lent will be offered during Penance Services which will be held on:
Wednesday, March 18, from 7 – 8 pm in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church; and
Wednesday, March 25, from 7 – 8 pm in Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
"Come and be washed in God's ever flowing
ocean of grace."
We are honored and excited to announce that our parish will host a celebration of the World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 6 at 1 PM in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church.
This ecumenical movement of women from many faith traditions share a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March. Gather to affirm that prayer and action are inseparable, and that both have an immeasurable positive influence in the world. Everyone is invited to participate. Music and refreshments will follow the service.
The Stations of the Cross
Every Friday evening during Lent, we commemorate the Passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ through the devotion of the Stations of the Cross. The Stations will begin at 7 PM and alternate between our two churches. Following the Stations is a sharing of Soup and Bread in the church hall. Please join us!
Taize Prayer Around the Cross
God is speaking to you. Are you listening?
During this candlelit prayer service, you are given the opportunity to meet God in song, the Word, and silent wonder. You are invited to quiet your mind, open your heart and feed your soul…and perhaps make some new friends along the way. Join us on March 15 at 7 pm in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church.
