  Personal Message


Faith Formation takes place in three distinct places: the home, the parish, the educational component (school, religious education session, homeschooling). First, parents must be formed themselves in order to provide good solid formation 
in the home. Therefore parent meetings are held in the parish to assist the parents in their responsibility no matter where the child's education takes place. Second, parish activities are needed for all children every year in order to assist them in the development of a strong Catholic identity. These activities are based on and flow from participation in the Sunday Eucharist. Third, these include all parish seasonal events in the parish such as retreats, celebration of Reconciliation, outreach projects, and service projects in the parish. Our Lady of Mercy parish follows the curriculum and educational materials approved by the Diocese of Rockville Centre. 

May 12: Fourth Sunday of Easter
John 10:27-30

The sheep know Jesus' voice because they have formed a relationship with him during the time they have spent together.  This Gospel may prompt an examination of our relationship with God.  As time is spent with God in prayer, a relationship will be nurtured and it will be easier to distinguish God's voice from another's.  If we do not spend time with God in prayer, we may heed the wrong call and stray from the one who loves us.

ASK YOURSELF: ​ Do I have a personal, intimate relationship with God?

LIVE THE GOSPEL:  Look for times/ways God meets you where you are by revealing his love to you.
