Mercy Alive

Safe Haven Sunday – Equipping the Family, Safeguarding Children


March 7th & 8th


Our Lady of Mercy joins the parishes of our Diocese in setting aside this weekend, March 7th and 8th, as Safe Haven Sunday. This Sunday is meant to give focused time and resources to addressing the harmfulness of pornography and other online threats to marriages, family life and culture.


Today’s awareness day is celebrated through prayer and a reflection within the context of
the Mass. After Mass, each individual and family will be given Covenant Eyes’ book,
Equipped: Smart Catholic Parenting in a Sexualized Culture. This book includes a unique
seven-day text-to-opt-in program: The Equipped 7-Day Challenge. This Challenge provides practical tips any caring adult can take to create safer digital environments for themselves and our young people.


Thank you for celebrating with us! If you have any questions about this awareness weekend, please contact the Diocese of Baton Rouge at or visit
God bless our families and keep them safe and holy.
