The Social Committee welcomes back all of our Mercy Family! We have certainly missed you, but wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone that participated in our virtual events during the past year. We had fun hosting virtual Bingo, more than once, Name That Tune, and sponsored a couple of Drive By events: Halloween Trunk or Treat and Christmas Trunk or Tree.
We know that everyone is ready to say hi to each other in a social setting. You will be able to do this on Sunday, July 11th, after the 11:30 Mass. We will be hosting a combined "Welcome Back" Social Event and a "Welcome to Mercy" Social Event for our new parishioners. Mark your calendars to join us for Hot Dogs cooked by our very own award-winning Knights of Columbus chefs and homemade treats donated by our generous Women of Mercy ladies! Sign up for the event by clicking on this link.
There is more! On July 31st after the 5pm Mass, and on August 1st after the 11:30am Mass, we will be hosting an Ice Cream Social. Plan to visit with each other after Mass while enjoying a cool treat.
If anyone likes to have fun and help plan monthly events, email email@example.com.

All other 'Common Seating' will be open for parishioners and NO Sign Up will be required for that group.

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.
