Children (Kindergarten – Grade 5)


Growing in Faith as His Domestic Church

The purpose of Our Lady of Mercy Parish K-5 “Households of Faith” is to encounter Jesus, grow in his love, and live as His disciples as a Domestic Church.

Through a Christian bond of affection, families, catechists, and the pastoral staff  are committed to the life-long study of our faith story, discovering God’s saving love throughout the ages.

As we share faith and live our sacred story, we experience the blessing of belonging to JESUS. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are continuously transformed by His love and graced with the gift of forming the next generation of disciples.
