If have been away from the parish for a while for any reason, please come home and join us at the “table of the Lord.”

Msgr. Gerald T. Ritchie - Pastor


We are a community that gathers together in prayer, life-long faith formation, fellowship, fun and service. We are striving to grow in holiness – which we define as deepening our relationship with the Lord Jesus personally and as a community of believers. We do all of this from our Catholic perspective.

We invite you to journey with us. If you join us, know that you will be walking with believers who are striving to be the presence of Jesus Christ. We are not perfect, but we are sincere in our efforts to be better people, better Christians every day.

Please join us on the Lord’s Day, Sunday morning or Saturday evening, to give thanks to God for the blessings you have received. The Eucharist is the source and summit of everything we do. We hope you will join us in offering praise to God. May the Lord be close to you as you explore this site dedicated to the Mother of our Lord.

The Eucharist – the real presence of Jesus Christ on the altar – is at the heart of our Catholic identity and all that we do at Our Lady of Mercy. You are welcome to join us for Mass at any time.

Look over the information available here. It offers a glimpse of the life and ministry at Our Lady of Mercy. But the best way to experience all that we are as a parish community is to come and spend time with us. Please know that I, along with the parish staff, am available if you have specific questions or concerns. You can contact us by calling the parish office, (814) 899-5342.
