Happenings at Our Lady of Mercy

COFFEE HOUR is next Sunday, March 24th following the 10:45 am Mass. Please join us!

CATHOLIC CHARITIES: Jennifer, a mother of three, came to Catholic Charities seeking help for her eldest child, Andrew, as he had become physically and verbally abusive to his younger siblings and was also skipping school. The family began working with Catholic Charities Multisystemic Therapy Program, an intensive, familyfocused intervention service to target and resolve the issues they were facing. Through the program and their therapist Kelly, Jennifer feels her household has regained peace and she has regained control as a mother. Your donation to the 2019 Appeal will help mothers like Jennifer find renewed hope and children like Andrew walk a stronger, positive path. Help your neighbor find hope. Select your new gift designation option when making a secure donation online at ccwny.org/donation or by calling Catholic Charities at 716-218-1400.
