Guided by the Governor’s decision to close all Pennsylvania public schools and the directive of the Diocese of Erie to suspend all faith formation programming from March 15-28, religious education classes at Our Lady of Mercy will not be held from March 15 through March 28. At this point, religious education programming will resume on March 29. If additional information calls for the extension of this closure, the religious education community at Our Lady of Mercy will be notified. Even when classes resume, parents are reminded to use their best judgment. If their child is ill, they should not attend class. May God hold all in God’s protective and loving care. May we hold one another in prayer.
Lent is the period of 40 days which comes before Easter in the Christian calendar. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.View / Download Flyer
