Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church, Harborcreek, PA, is seeking a Pastoral Musician. A welcoming, engaged community of 600 families, we are committed to spiritual growth, and sharing a vibrant faith.
The part-time Director of Music Ministries is actively engaged in the worship life of the parish and leads a music ministry program that includes a mix of cantors, singers, and instrumentalists to support the song of the assembly at weekend and special liturgies. Duties include, but are not limited to, accompanying liturgies on a Roland Digital Mini Grand Piano, selection of music; rehearsing and directing the choir; planning special liturgies in collaboration with the staff.
What could be better than a summer evening with friends enjoying a cold drink and some talk about God? All women of the parish are invited to join us June 14, 21, 28, July 12 & 19 at 7:00 at the home of Irene Lucas 1019 Bartlett Rd.
We will be outside as long as the weather permits. We will be discussing “Between Heaven and Mirth” by Fr. James Martin, S.J. (2 chapters each week). After a year of so much loss, stress and fear, it is time to reclaim the importance of joy and laughter in the spiritual life.
There may not be any religious education classes during the summer months, but that does not mean that we are on vacation from our faith. The summer months are spent in the church season of Ordinary Time. This is the season when we walk alongside Jesus to learn how to become a better disciple. Here is a simple challenge to help each of us grow in our faith during the summer.
All youth in the parish can play. How to play instructions and details see links below.
Join us for a 20 minute reflection from the book Jesus Today. Come in person to the parish parlor or join us on zoom. Contact Donna Clark with questions.View / Download Information
This initiative began shortly after the formation of the council, where a portion of the golf raffle proceeds are earmarked for college-bound high school seniors who, along with their parents are members of the parish. With some uncertainty, we move forward, thanking you in advance for supporting fund-raising to offset the loss of golf raffle revenue. Please see the OLM website or contact the church office. Along with an application, a brief essay is required and a certified, most-recently available transcript from the applicant’s school. Application deadline is Friday, June 4th.
Please print out the attached CSA pledge sheet and return the filled out form to Our Lady of Mercy Church by March 10, 2021
