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. We welcome you and your family of all ages to our family of faith, without judgment. 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 to the extent that you are able. Please come and celebrate with us each week and make this community an extension of your own family. Welcome Home!


Gospel Reflection Small Group

Here at Mary Mother of Mercy Parish we are starting a small group or small Christian community program. We know that when a group of up to 12 believers come together in the home to pray and reflect on the word of God good things will happen. This is the way that the Catholic Church was started by Jesus and the apostles.

Our small groups are rooted in the universal Church and are under the authority of our pastor here at Mary Mother of Mercy Parish. The purpose of this first small group initiative will be to read, reflect and learn about the Gospel reading for the upcoming Sunday. When appropriate we will highlight the Old Testament prophecy that is fulfilled by this Gospel passage and the section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church that is relevant to this teaching.

Small groups will be held in the home and will last no more than one hour. The day and time of each small group meeting will be set by the group host. The outline and session content will be posted here on the Mary Mother of Mercy website. Any parishioner can start a small group. Just invite some friends or family members and get started right away!

If you would like to participate, but are not able to host a Small Group, please call the Parish Office with your name and contact information, and you will be connected with others in your situation. Likewise, if you would like to host a Small Group and are open to members you are not acquainted with, please let the Parish Office know.

Click the 'Small Groups' tab above for information on how to get started, and for the Gospel Reflection Outline of the week.

Something to think about...questions for this week

Are you inclined to store up earthly treasures for yourself, and neglect becoming rich in what matters to God?

Is it time to re-evaluate your priorities and do things differently?

(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.)
