"Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all."
(Mark 10: 43-44)

Welcome to the parish of Mary, Mother of Mercy!

Welcome to the web page for the newly formed parish of  Mary, Mother of Mercy. This new parish has three churches: Holy Cross in Ovid, New York; St. Francis Solanus in Interlaken, New York; and St. James the Apostle in Trumansburg, New York. The parish office is located at the Parish Center: 3660 Orchard St., Interlaken, NY.

The title Mother of Mercy is thought to have been first given to Blessed Virgin Mary by St. Odo (d.942), Abbot of Cluny. It is a fitting title of Our Lady both because she brought forth for us Jesus, the Christ, the visible manifestation of the mercy of the invisible God, and because she is the spiritual mother of the faithful, full of grace and mercy. Please join us in faith and in person at any of our three churches. Our mass schedule is listed below and additional resources are available on subsequent pages.

To join the parish community or to celebrate the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, anointing of the sick, or marriage, please phone the Parish Center (607 294–0064) to make arrangements.

“Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world by your generous consent! Receive our gratitude, and by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable them to make our peace with God.”
From St. Augustine of Hippo’s prayer to Mary, Mother of Mercy
