March 24, 8pm: “Receive The Mercy of God”

Like the Father in the Prodigal Son story, the mercy of God is ever-present, and waiting for our return home. The mercy is freely given, with no strings attached. God’s mercy is best seen in the encounters between Jesus and those most in need of His mercy!

March 25, 7pm: “Give Thanks for God’s Mercy”

Our response to this invitation of mercy is molded deep in our hearts by the Eucharist we celebrate regularly. The Greek word “Eucharistia” means to give thanks! We can fashion a heart of gratitude both in our prayer life and in our relationships with people.

March 26, 7pm: “Our Brokenness Needs the Merciful Touch of Jesus” (Sacrament of Reconciliation available)

The healing touch of Christ from the cross reaches out to any wounded heart. His gentleness and compassion can transform and heal us when we find it difficult to love or be loved. “By his wounds we are healed.”

March 27, 7pm: “Sharing the Mercy of God with a World in Need”

“Sharing the Mercy of God with a World in Need”
The Eucharist is meant to transform us into a people of compassion and care. We live in a world so desperately in need of our healing and merciful presence. The mercy we have received is meant to be shared with others. We are His body, the Body of Christ, given a mission to serve others.
