Bishop Barres' Pastoral Letter

Bishop John O. Barres has recently written a pastoral letter to all members of the church of Rockville Centre.  The letter encourages special devotion to Our Lady, most especially as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Marian apparitions at Fatima.  Please take a few moments to read the Bishop's letter:

The McGann-Mercy community was graced with a pastoral visit by our new Diocesan Bishop, His Excellency, the Most Reverend John O.

Installation of Bishop Barres

McGann-Mercy administrators, faculty, students, and family members were privileged to participate in the installation ceremonies for His Excellency, the Most Rev. John O. Barres, as the Fifth Bishop of Rockville Centre at St. Agnes Cathedral.  Members of the McGann-Mercy family were present both at the Solemn Vespers in vigil of the installation, and also at the installation Mass.  Bishop Barres took time to greet several of our students personally and expressed his hopes and prayers for our entire school community.

March for Life

McGann-Mercy students travel to Washington, D.C., each year to join in the annual March for Life.  Students are able to participate in the demonstration and visit Congressional offices.  This is a great experience of putting our faith into action!

o Pope's Monthly Intentions On YouTube

Since 1844, the Holy Father has invited Catholics worldwide to join him in prayer for different intentions each month.  Pope Francis has recently taken to new media to increase participation in the practice.  He will be releasing a monthly video, available on the Vatican's YouTube channel, to announce the intentions for that particular month.  More information can be found on the website of the Apostleship of Prayer:
