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!

** Small groups (12 or fewer individuals) will meet in the host’s home and meetings will last no more than one hour. The day and time of each small group meeting will be set by the group host. The weekly outline and session content is available by clicking on the 'Small Groups' link above.

** Any parishioner can start a small group. Just invite some friends or family members and get started! Visit our website to find a ‘How to’ instruction page to help you get started.

** Want to participate but not host? Want to host but don’t know who to ask? Call the Parish Office with your name and contact information, and you will be connected with others in your situation.

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 small group initiative will be to read, reflect and learn about the Gospel reading for the upcoming Sunday.

Make A Joyful Noise

Parish Music Initiative –
(Inspired by the Convocation of Catholic Leaders)

Continually Expand & Invigorate the Liturgical Music Ministry

    Grow the Choir offerings by reviving the Contemporary Music Ensemble

    Add instruments to all choir offerings

    Combine these additions with the Cantored Masses

We invite musicians of all types: vocalists, percussionists, guitarists, and instrumentalists of strings, woodwinds and brass to offer their talents and skills to God in Mary MOM’s music ministry.

The time commitment for this ministry is one group rehearsal per week (1 ½ hrs.) and one weekend Mass per month. One year commitment requested to begin. We need everyone to share the gifts and talents God has given them!

Please contact the Music Director, Ed DeLuise at [email protected], or the parish office to join.

Community Connections

Loving someone struggling with addiction can be very difficult, painful, and chaotic. A community support group can help by offering peer support for anyone affected by drug addiction. Join the group on Saturday mornings at 9:30am at The Church of Incarnation, 240 Main Street, Mantua, NJ. All are welcome to attend, including those suffering from addiction/alcoholism, family members and those who have experienced a loss from the disease. For more information, call 609-617-9959.

A Gift for Our Parishioners

Something to think about...questions for this week

As Jesus continued His final journey to Jerusalem, He spoke about Judgment Day. Are you actively striving to be able to enter through the narrow gate? Are you living a virtuous life? If not what are you going to change? Remember—life on earth is short; but eternal life is forever. Where are you choosing by your life to spend it?

(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.)

Email Communications from Parish Staff:

Please know that our parish priests and staff members will never contact you via email to ask that you provide them with gift cards or assist them financially in a crisis situation. If you receive an email which is seemingly being sent by a priest or staff member requesting financial assistance of any kind, please report it to the Parish Office immediately ([email protected]). Thank you.
