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. 

April 14, 2019 Palm Sunday
Luke 19:36-40

As we take our palm branches before the procession today, we enter into the holiest of weeks in the liturgical year.  Palm Sunday begins with our joining with the disciples of Jesus' time in rejoicing that the Messiah has come.  The Gospel at the procession is clear that even creation knows that Jesus should be praised.  When the Pharisees told Jesus to rebuke his disciples, we hear that if the followers do not praise Jesus, then the stones will do so.

ASK YOURSELF: ​ Where do I need more of Jesus' help so that I do not deny him?  Where do I struggle with following God's will?

LIVE THE GOSPEL:  Look for places/ways you can help to bring hope to others and help to create a more loving atmosphere.
