United Way/Employee Giving
“It’s through the sharing of blessings that faith, hope and love become abundant.” - Bishop Sullivan
House of Charity
Parish Goal: $147,973 Raised to Date: $140,109
The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is a wonderful story in which each and every one of us has a part to play. Every year, through the support of individuals and organizations, people are served right in our own parish community as well as many more who live beyond our parish. This support enables our neighbors near and far in the South Jersey area to receive corporal, spiritual, psychological, moral, and social assistance. These services could not be provided by one parish alone. Your gift matters.
If you haven’t yet contributed to this campaign, please prayerfully consider how you can help.
There are several ways to contribute: drop a check in the collection basket (made out to ‘House of Charity’); mail your donation to the Parish Office; make a pledge (can be paid in 10 installments), or see if your employer offers matching contributions.
Thank you to all those who have shared God’s blessings with those in need!
Something to think about...questions for this week
Do you believe that Jesus will come again? The parable of the ten virgins forewarns believers to be prepared for the return of Christ, and reminds us that we know neither the day nor the hour of His return (or of our own passing from this life). How prepared are you for either of these eventualities? How seriously have you taken your decision to be a disciple of Jesus?
(Though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
What is God calling you to do?
Discernment groups are meeting now for those men discerning a call to the priesthood, as well as for women discerning a call to the religious life to help answer the question, 'What is God calling me to do?'.
More information can be found by contacting the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 583-2864.

Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish
is a Roman Catholic parish serving central Gloucester County, New Jersey. Our parish community was formed from the former parishes Our Lady Queen of Peace in Pitman, and Our Lady of Lourdes in Glassboro. We are a part of the Camden Diocese, under the leadership of the Most Reverend Dennis Sullivan.
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.”
