OUR CHARISM

Our charism comes from the Mercy order founded by Catherine McAuley.  The Mercy order brings us our children’s prayer that we share each Monday morning.



My God,
I will belong to You forever. Teach me to trust in You because I know You love me and will always be near me. Help me always to obey You even when it is hard.
Take from my heart all fear. Help me never to be sad, but always joyful, knowing that You are my God and that someday I will be with You in Heaven.
Amen.
