Mercy Alive


VOL. 38 NO. 37


During this Month of Mercy, we are excited to announce our newest seasonal publication, Mercy Magnificat. This magazine serves as a record of Our Lady of Mercy’s community events and accomplishments throughout the season. It was created to magnify the history and culture of our parish and lays out an in-depth timeline of our past and future while highlighting community members for their combined work and faith.

In the magazine, you’ll find pictures and stories of past events and save the dates for our upcoming activities. We’ll give you a bit of history about our church and information about our future plans.

One of the most exciting features of the magazine is Magnifying the Faithful section which will spotlight a parishioner’s accomplishments and how they incorporate their faith into their business and community involvement.

The Mercy Magnificat is also a great avenue for community partners to advertise their local business. We want to share your information with our faithful community.

With prayerful consideration, we hope that you enjoy this first issue of Mercy Magnificat and we are excited to share many more editions with you, our faithful community who reminds us that Mercy is alive!
