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).
