This five day parish mission, run by Father Ken Geraci, of the Fathers of Mercy in the USA, assists the parish priest in his ministry of preaching the Word of God and administering the sacraments to the people of the parish. It seeks to inflame all the members of the parish with the Infinite Love of Almighty God, and to call them to receive the Merciful Love of the Heart of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Fr Ken Geraci, lived the life of the prodigal son for most of his young adult life. Raised in a nominal Catholic family, who only lived the externals of the faith, Fr. Ken left the Catholic Church for many years. Through a series of conversions, years of struggle, study and questioning, Fr. Ken found his way from agnosticism, to non-denomination Christianity and ultimately back to the Catholic Church. Fr. Ken joined the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and was ordained in 2012. Having lived a secular existence, Fr. Ken has a great understanding of the personal and societal pressures that individuals face and knows what it is like to “hate coming to church.” This mission is for people of all ages and levels of faith, from those who are madly in love with Jesus, to those who pretty much cannot stand church or religion. Regardless of your level of faith come and experience God’s Divine Mercy!

Each evening there will be a Conference talk from 7-8pm on topics such as:

• God’s Mercy – Church or Spirituality?
• Why do we do that as Catholics?
• Jesus the Divine Mercy
• Two Obstacles to Healing
• How to Pray the Mass
