                    WE ARE THE MISSION OF DIVINE MERCY

We are a small Catholic monastic community in the Texas Hill Country. Through our life of prayer and through our retreats, we strive to bring God’s mercy and His messages of mercy to our suffering world. We invite you to visit the Mission.

Jesus, we trust in You.

HOLY SOULS MEMORIAL BRICKS

A devotion to the Holy Souls has been part of MDM’s ministry and spirituality from the beginning. We believe that the souls of those who have gone before us, whether in Purgatory or Paradise, are a strong intercessory force, and can be of great help to us. And if they are in Purgatory, it is our responsibility to work for their release through the offering of our prayers and Masses. Thus, between the Holy Souls and us is a relationship of profound mutual love and support.

We invite you to purchase a brick in memory of someone who has died. This is an act of love, respect and remembrance. Your brick will be part of a sacred space on consecrated ground.

Each 4×8 brick is priced at $350. The bricks allow for up to three lines of text and can accommodate 18-21 characters per line.

APPROPRIATE DRESS

The Mission is a monastery; it is consecrated ground; it is our Community’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to visit the Mission. We simply ask that they respect our request for clothing that is appropriate for a place consecrated to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, and in coming to Mass that they dress in a manner that shows reverence for the occasion. Father wears his vestments, the altar servers put on their albs,  and the congregation wears clothes that are appropriate for attending Mass.

BELOW THE KNEE

NO SHORTS

SLEEVES

NO TANK TOPS

MODEST NECKLINES

NO LOW-CUT NECKLINES

LOOSE FITTING

NO MID-THIGH HEMLINES

Also, be alerted that the Mission terrain is fairly rough and rocky, with few paved walk ways. Good walking shoes are helpful; high heels are not. We appreciate your help in making others aware of our request for appropriate dress while attending Mass at the Mission.

We think Our Lord appreciates it too.
