Subs, Suds, and the Spirit
Subs, Suds, and the Spirit consists of three opportunities for the men of Mercy Parish to share a meal and share in our faith. The theme for these three initial gatherings is "No Man Left Behind" providing a relaxing atmosphere to unwind, share our experiences, and discuss what a men's ministry means for each of us in meeting the needs for our rapidly growing parish. Upcoming gatherings are 6:30pm on 21 January, 18 February, and 21 April 2020. If you have special dietary requirements or beverage recommendations, please inform Deacon Rick at email@example.com

Charitable giving can be an important part of estate, financial, and tax planning. During Christmas, individuals participate in charitable giving, and this can have an impact as we also get ready to prepare our tax returns.

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.

“MERCY AND STEWARDSHIP BY ALL FOR THE GOOD OF ALL”
Mercy Parish is a growing Catholic faith community of 381 families and over 1183 members as of January 1, 2019. In the two and a half years since our inception as a Parish, we have doubled our original parish membership, completed construction of the Multipurpose Hall (Phase I of our Parish’s Campus Vision) and are rapidly repaying the remaining loan amounts for this construction to the Archdioceses of Birmingham. Once these loans have been satisfied, we will immediately turn our Campaign efforts towards funding the construction of the Main Church (Phase II of the Campus Vision). Although, full funding and construction of all four phases of our Campus Vision is still several years away, it has been demonstrated by the ongoing charitable support of our members and visitors as well as the steady increase in our Parish membership that there is a strong desire in the Huntsville/Madison and surrounding areas for another vibrant and welcoming Catholic community.
