Our Lady of Mercy, Forest Hills


The entire parish wishes the 2018 graduates of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy many blessings and best wishes as they complete the first but longest part of their educational journey. The graduating class is extremely talented and hopefully they will continue to develop their many gifts throughout their high school years.  Best wishes also go to all the local young people in our Forest Hills community who are graduating from grade school, high school or college at this time of the year.

Among the graduates of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy, several young women took part in a recent Vocation Video Project sponsored by Catholic Television Network (CTN). Miss Ann Torres took first prize for her submission. Maevince Dorotan, Kimberley Kaplanni and Alexandra Poltorak earned honorable mention. Not only were their submissions inspiring, challenging and clever but they also highlighted the talents of the OLMCA Class of 2018. Our parishioners may view the videos at:
