Holy Eucharist

I am the Living Bread that came down from heaven.

John 6:51

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. When we faithfully receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we grow deeper in communion with God and fellowship with one another.


Our Lady of Mercy celebrates the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist at each Mass. Here is  our Mass Schedule.

Preparation for the sacrament begins in first grade Religious Education classes and continues through second grade. Attendance at a parent meeting is required. A child needs to be in first and second grade programs to receive Communion in the spring of second grade.
