Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of Mercy:
Summer break has started and we can feel the heat!
Our Vacation Bible School will start next week, June 26 -30, at Our Lady of Mercy and so I ask that you pray for our children and all those who are involved from our Religious Education office and youth group. This is a great opportunity for our children to do something important about their faith and at the same time having fun. These children are our future leaders and catechists or whatever they will become. It is very important that they receive good values so that they will grow as good people of God, obedient to their parents, nice brothers and sisters to their siblings and good friends. I turn to you parents: please try your best to nurture your children in the best way you can. With the resources you have, provide them with all the good things they need and most especially things that will last. Education is the one best thing you can give: intellectually, spiritually and morally. You know that so well. Show them how to grow as good Christians with the way you live it. In this society we live in they cannot come to church by themselves. Please bring them here. Do not starve them spiritually.
To those who attended the Jersey City Together meeting this past Monday: Thank You! Please check out the update in the bulletin.
To everyone: Enjoy summertime!
Thank you and God bless you all!
Please pray for the sick:
