As the Apostle Paul taught us, the Holy Spirit enables us to invest a variety of spiritual gifts to serve each other in the Church. LAST WEEKEND YOU WERE INVITED TO RECOMMIT TO A MINISTRY, or Scripture study or maybe even try something new here at Mercy! As we enter into a new year of service, let us reflect upon our Month of Mercy, Month of Service initiative and the Mission of our church family –
We are a family of faith united in prayer, love and Catholic tradition. We are dedicated to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through evangelization, education and Christian example. We strive to be as faithful as the Blessed Virgin Mary and live our faith by serving God, our fellow brothers and sisters, and our community.
Our statement underscores the universal call to holiness and everyone’s vocation to know, love and serve the Father in this world in preparation for happiness with Him for eternity in Heaven. OUR LADY OF MERCY PARISH HAS SOMETHING FOR YOU to share your talents with your brothers and sisters. So many of you are nourished at the beautiful celebrations of holy Mass and hours of Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in our Perpetual Adoration Chapel, you’re encouraged to share the grace you have received and explore other opportunities of learning and prayer. Please review the Serve the Needs of All trifold that was mailed to you and listen with the ear of your heart to God’s call in your life.
Some of our areas of ministry especially in need of your service are:
Liturgy and Prayer
Perpetual Adoration – Devoting one hour per week as a committed adorer
Mass Ushers – Men and women serve weekends and Holy Days
Christian Formation for Children/Religious Education
Sunday Nursery and Bible Class – Volunteers are needed to serve on a rotational basis babysitting and teaching preschool age children
