Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish offers catechesis and faith formation that focuses on the “whole family,” spans our whole life and includes the whole parish family. We seek to empower parents in their role as primary educators of their children as well as support adults in their own faith formation. The components of the program will center on the Holy Eucharist and will provide the opportunity for full, conscious and active participation. They will include some age-specific pieces as well as many opportunities for the whole parish family to participate inter-generationally (all age groups together).
