You are invited to pray with us for those in the Mercy community, Sisters of Mercy, alumnae, family and friends who are in need of prayers. The Catherine McAuley Prayer Circle meets the second Saturday, September through May, at 9:15 a.m. in the Our Lady of Mercy Chapel.  We are off for the summer but will return and resume on September 10.  The Prayer Circle prays in song, the reading of intentions and the scriptural Rosary. Coffee and conversation follow the service and participants are reminded to use the East parking lot and entrance.

Even though we do not formally meet in the summer, please send us your prayer requests.  We will hold you in our prayers.

If you would like us to pray for a special intention, please contact Naomi Chambers at or 402.553.9424.
