Our Lady of Mercy Knights of Columbus Council will be accepting scholarship applications from college-bound high school seniors who, along with their parents are members of the parish.
Applications are available through the link below or the church office. Along with an application, a brief essay is required and a certified and sealed most recently available transcript from the applicant’s school. The application deadline is Friday, May 29. Remind others who may be interested. Watch the website or bulletin for reminders.
Our Lady of Mercy will try a virtual Scripture Study on Paul’s Letter to the Philippians using zoom and a program on formed.org.
Each week, participants will view one segment in this 6-part series. Then we will gather at 11:00 Thursday mornings on Zoomed to discuss the segment.
We will begin April 23. If interested, send your email by April 20 to email@example.com so you can receive the link to join in. If that time does not work for you, contact Irene with another time option and we can explore a second group.
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 effective March 15.
Religious education classes at Our Lady of Mercy will not be held from March 15 until further notice. At this point, religious education programming will resume on May 1.
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.
