“Even now we are journeying towards the sabbath of eternity, the new Jerusalem, towards our common home in heaven. Jesus says: 'I make all things new' (Rev 21:5). Eternal life will be a shared experience of awe, in which each creature, resplendently transfigured, will take its rightful place and have something to give those poor men and women who will have been liberated once and for all.”
Pope Francis
Laudato Si', #243
SERVICE: Taking Care of His Suffering Body

Friends of Mercy

Friends of Mercy of St. Jerome's was founded in the fall of 2000.  Its broad purpose was to assist those in need of our parish and community with a focus on the sick and homebound, the elderly, and the bereaved.  This ministry functions more as a network rather than a meeting-based organization.  Friends of Mercy has a wide range of missions which include:

  • Reaching out and offering services to people, including bringing Communion to them in their homes, visiting, calling to check in, providing rides, etc.,

  • Assisting at funerals upon requests,

  • Arranging the annual parish Memorial Mass held on the first Saturday of November, and

  • Providing a team of eucharistic ministers to visit Crescent Cities Nursing Home on Sundays after the 8:30 a.m. Mass (with 4 teams - a team goes once a month).

Prayer for Souls

Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious Blood of your divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the word today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my own family. Amen

-St. Gertrude the Great (1256-1302)
