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.

Scouting is one of many forms of youth ministry and an opportunity to develop our youth as well as their adult volunteers towards a Christlike life. This weekend (Feb. 23rd) we are celebrating Scout Sunday at the 11:30am Mass (attend in uniform) and are asking everyone with kids to stay afterwards or if at an earlier Mass to come back for a 12:45pm presentation on the Scouting programs Mercy is considering. We need your feedback on what programs are a good fit for Mercy Parish. We will have representatives from American Heritage Girls, Girls Scouts, Scouts BSA, Boy Scouts, and Trail Life available. Help us discern a viable form of scouting for the youth of our parish.
The Most Merciful Jesus Knights of Columbus Parish Round Table of Madison meets at 6:30pm every 3rd Thursday in the Youth Room. Our next Round Table is February 20th.

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