The month of September is a very exciting and important month of celebration within our parish as we celebrate the Month of Mercy! The focus of the month is on our devotion to the Blessed Mother under the title of Our Lady of Mercy and to grow as a parish and community through prayer, service, and fellowship. During the month of September, we will celebrate three Marian feast days, all of which we encourage you to attend.
It is important for us to commemorate these special days due to the role Mary has in our salvation. She models for us how God can use us as instruments to bring about His Kingdom.
In addition to the Feast Day celebrations, we will offer a few more opportunities to participate: one through FORMATION and one through SERVICE. With prayerful consideration, we ask that you consider participating in these opportunities.
Our Lady of Mercy, pray for us!
