This Saturday, August 23rd, is the 6th anniversary of the Dedication of the Chapel of Divine Mercy!  Whenever a church is solemnly dedicated (sometimes also called “consecrated”), it is set apart in an exclusive way for the worship of Almighty God.  Here in America, a relatively small percentage of churches are “dedicated churches.”  Our Chapel of Divine Mercy is a consecrated church, and Saturday will be a Solemnity here at the Fathers of Mercy due to this important anniversary.  We would like to invite all of our friends and neighbors to join us on Saturday for the 8:00 AM Mass — and could you offer a prayer for our religious community, that we will receive many more good young men who will respond to the call of God to serve Him as religious and priests, “bringing the Mercy of God to all His prodigal children”?

Thank you, and God bless you!

About Fr. Ben Cameron

Fr. Ben Cameron was born in Kokomo, Indiana, and grew up as a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in that city. During his junior high and high school years, he attended a small Christian school that was operated by a local Baptist church. It was in that non-Catholic environment, where his faith was often challenged, that he began to study the Catholic Faith. Fr. Ben is a 1991 graduate of Christendom College, a small Catholic liberal arts college in Front Royal, Virginia, where he became involved in a lay apostolate known as the Legion of Mary, which awakened his desire to share his Catholic Faith with others. Upon receiving his degree in Political Science and History, Fr. Ben planned a career in the political arena, but soon found that God had other plans. He joined the Fathers of Mercy in 1992, studied theology at Holy Apostles Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut, and was ordained to the Holy Priesthood on May 31, 1997.
