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

– Amen.

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.

“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. Please click the link for information on our Parish’s plans for growth. Please click Capital Campaign button below for  more information.

St. John the Baptist Catholic School

is dedicated to the spiritual, academic, social and physical development of each student.  Students in K4-8th grade have the opportunity to experience daily faith formation while participating in engaged, hands on learning that promotes strong academic growth.  Current enrollment is over 475 students in grades K4 - 8. Accredited by the AdvancEd Association and under the guidance of the Diocese of Birmingham, St. John’s is currently the only parochial school in the city of Madison.  It strives to foster an atmosphere of academic excellence rooted in a solid foundation of Catholic teachings during daily student life.

 

Parishioners at Mercy Parish have the opportunity to attend St. John’s Catholic School at the parishioner rate tuition.  Verification of parishioner status forms go from the school to the pastor. 

 

Please check out St. John’s Catholic School at www.stjohnb.com or email the principal, Sheryl Lewis at slewis@stjohnb.com.
