to the Fathers of Mercy
Father, You were so moved with mercy at the sight of sinful humanity
that You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to be its
Redeemer. As Mercy Incarnate, He came to reveal You as a Father Who is
rich in mercy and to be the expiation for our sins. In Your mercy,
therefore, we humbly beseech You to send the Congregation of the
Fathers of Mercy men who want to be consecrated Religious in the spirit
of Father Jean Baptiste Rauzan, our founder; men who will zealously
propagate the Faith and work tirelessly for the salvation of souls
under the protection of Mary's Immaculate Conception, so that the work
of calling back Your prodigal sons and daughters will continue
throughout the ages. We ask this, O Lord of the harvest, through Jesus
Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the
Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
from Fr. Tony Stephens,
New Year from the Fathers of Mercy! May you experiance the love
and peace of the Infant Child Jesus through the loving intercession of
his Holy Mother Mary for this New Year.
John Molloy, CPM: Faithful Priest of God and Patriarch of the

June 4, 2011, The Father of Mercy were very pleased to welcome Bishop
William Medley, Bishop of the Diocese of Owensboro, for the ordination
of four of our confreres. Rev. Br. Jewel Aytona and Rev. Br.
Kenneth Soroko were ordained to the priesthood, and Br. Kenneth Geraci
and Br. Andrew Cravalho were ordained to the diaconate. For the
newly ordained Fr. Kenneth and Fr. Jewel, it was the last step in their
formation process in becoming priests with the Fathers of Mercy.
Fr. Jewel will be assigned as a chaplain at the Shrine of Our
Lady of Good Help in Champion, WI; and Fr. Kenneth will be working at
St. Helen's Catholic Church in Glasgow, KY. The newly ordained
deacons, Rev. Br. Kenneth and Rev. Br. Andy, will both be assisting
Rev. Gerald Baker as deacons at St. Ann's in Morganfield, KY.
Please pray for our newly ordained men, that they be zealous and
holy witnesses to the Gospel."
