February 7, 2016 – From The Desk of The Pastor

Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of Mercy and Our Lady of Sorrows:

Rev. Fr. Marty JacintoLast weekend I mentioned in my letter the repair of the boiler in the school and I gave you the figure of that repair. Well, I found out later on that the expenses were more than that. I was told that the figure I mentioned was just for retube of boiler. The oil piping for boilers costs $3,500.00. So, we spent $10,000 total. Thank you for your continued support.

​Lenten season is here. It is time for us to work on our spiritual life… have we grown and advance since last year? Only you can answer that question. The church is here to offer and provide services, but in the end it all depends on you. We start our Lenten season this Wednesday with the imposition of ashes at all masses and prayer service (check out the schedule published here.) Then, let us journey together by going to other services available for you. Check out the Holy Name Society Stations of the Cross, a play “Jesus The Healer” at the end of this month and many others.

​This weekend is Sharing God’s blessing Annual Appeal. Please consider giving for the Church and not think that it is for someone else. And, don’t stop supporting our capital campaign. God bless your generosity and from the bottom of my heart I thank you!

Parish office at OLM is open every Saturday now. Please check out the office hour published here.

God bless us all!

Love and prayers,

Father Marty
