Honor Our Blessed Mother
in the Month of May
The month of May has long been a special time for Catholics to pay homage to our Blessed Mother Mary, since the days of the early Christians who sought to combat pagan idolatry. A particularly powerful way to honor the Mother of God and be drawn ever closer to Jesus is by praying the Rosary. Our Mercy Rosary Ministry encourages everyone to join us, whether in person or online, in praying the Rosary each week starting at 4:30 pm Saturday or 8:00 am Sunday; and 8:00 am Tuesday through Friday prior to daily Mass! For more information about our Rosary Ministry contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
"The Rosary is truly a prayer of Jesus living in Mary, a prayer that is prayed within the presence of Mary and through which the Holy Spirit transforms us into the likeness of Jesus whom we meet in the communion of the mysteries." -- St. Louis De Montfort
The Mercy Parish Capital Campaign wishes to thank everyone who participated in our Nite at the Races event last Friday! We all had a lot of fun and raised more than $8000 towards our new church facility. Special thanks go to our event organizers – Pat and Vicky Nash, and to our emcee Tom Childress. Thanks also to the Knights of Columbus for cooking dinner, and to the many volunteers who helped make the event a success. A final thanks to all of the horse “owners”…with special recognition to the three-time-winner Dustbunny stable of horses!
Confirmed High School Teens
CCT is here! Join us this Fall!
Calling all confirmed high schoolers. MPYG is presenting a new program called Catholic Coffee Talk. This program will consist of open dialogue with you, the teens, driving the discussion. Our goal is to help you take what you’ve learned in Faith Formation and apply it to your lives as you get ready to leave high school. Some of the topics we will be discussing are “who are you”, “where do you fit in society”, “what it means to have a relationship with God”, “faith and how to live it”, “orienting our emotions towards God”, and many more. We will meet starting in the fall between the 8:30 and 11:30 am Masses. Click on this link for more information.

Most Merciful Jesus I thank you with all my heart for giving me Yourself in this Holy Eucharist; body, blood, soul and divinity.
May this precious gift enlighten me with the power to be your Mercy.
O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.
Most Merciful Father,
We thank You for Your unconditional love and infinite mercy. We turn to You with grateful hearts for bringing us from far and near and uniting us as Your loving family.
We pray for your blessing and guidance as we continue to build your Kingdom at Mercy parish. Give us a spirit of cooperation, and a generous sacrificial heart. May all those who support this mission find Your constant protection. Inflame us with the fire of your love so that we may become instruments of your Mercy to all Your creation. Humbly we pray through the intercession of our Blessed Mother and Your Beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord
Most Merciful Jesus -- Have Mercy on us.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart ... I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
