March 6, 2021 will be the first Mass of the year at the Mother of Mercy Chapel, Rome City Indiana.
This chapel is recognized as the birthplace of the devotion to Our Lady, the Immaculate Virgin, Patroness of America (in short – Our Lady of America). Mass will be offered by the local pastor, Fr. Osman Ramos. The chapel has been granted permission by Bishop Kevin Rhoades to offer the Holy Sacraments under the guidance of the local pastor and to promote this private devotion to Our Lady.
The Mother of Mercy Foundation which owns the chapel is renovating the chapel and associated grounds. See the statue of Our Lady of America on display in the west wing of the chapel.
First Saturday Devotion
This Mass will be offered on the First Saturday of the month in keeping with The First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The devotion arose out of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. It is in reparation for offenses against the Immaculate Heart.
