Mercy Alive


Dear Our Lady of Mercy Parish,


My name is Tori LaBelle and I am thankful to join the Our Lady of Mercy family as the new Director of Life Teen. I am originally from Pennsylvania where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Theology at Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit (the birthplace of the American charismatic renewal!).

I most recently worked as the Director of High School and Young Adult Ministries in Bangor, Maine. 


I have been involved in youth ministry leadership since I was 16, and even met my current husband, Mark, at a Youth Conference in Nashville!


I look forward to joyfully journeying alongside High Schoolers as they navigate the difficult cultural climate of today. 


I am excited to attend Camp Hidden Lake this July with Life Teen students and dive into the school year with a heart yearning to know the relentless Father more deeply!


Parents and young adult volunteers are needed to help keep this program successful. If you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer, please send me an email or drop by the Church Office for a visit. 


In Christ,

Ms. Tori LaBelle
Life Teen Director

Dear Our Lady of Mercy Parish,


Hello! My name is Delaney Walsh, and I am thrilled to be welcomed into your beautiful community, thank you for your warm reception!


Serving as Mercy’s new Edge Coordinator allows me the wonderful opportunity to work with Middle School youth and parents. I recently graduated from LSU with a B.A. in Communication Studies. Throughout college I was actively involved in ministry at Christ the King Catholic Church, leading Bible studies, worship, and small groups. I also worked at Camps Kahdalea & Chosatonga as a Middle School Counselor. Through this experience and formation, I feel equipped to continue my call to discipleship within this parish.


In John 10:10, Jesus tells us, “I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”  Life with Christ is a beautiful adventure. I desire for this youth program to reflect the burning heart of Jesus, and to be a space for encounter, community, and growth!  Through programs like Edge nights, Bible studies, service programs, retreats our youth will have ample opportunity to love and know our Lord in their daily lives.  


I am so excited to be a member of this Church family and serve its youth! I am asking for your prayers and support as we continue to grow our youth ministry.  A core leadership of young adults and parents who desire to share their faith in word and example is needed for the success of this program. If you are interested, please stop by my office, or email me. I look forward to working with and getting to know you more!


Through the Sacred Heart of Jesus, 


Ms. Delaney Walsh
Edge Coordinator
