Welcome to our parish!
Hello and welcome to the web site of Our Lady of Mercy, the only official English-speaking Catholic parish in Madrid. Our mission is to provide the English-speaking Christians of Madrid with the ability to worship God in their mother tongue. We have people from all over the world and our parish is a family.
We hope you can find the information you are looking for on this site. If you come to Madrid, we hope you will join our community for Sunday liturgy. We hope you will “Come and see.” (John 1:39)
May God bless you,

OLM Prayer Group
The power of prayer is infinite. And no more so than now, amid this global pandemic, do we all feel the need to pray and ask the Lord for his help and guidance. OLM has started up its own Prayer Group which meets on the last Tuesday of each month at 8pm (This month it’s on the last Monday). This is currently an online event, which we hope will become in person at some point. The next meeting is on August 30th 2022. We come together for about an hour, during which we pray together, reflect on a specific scripture passage and then pray for our own intentions and those which have been sent to us. We would be delighted to welcome more members to the group. However, if you can’t make the session but would like to send us a prayer request, feel free to do just that! Please send an email to Judy MacInnes at OLMPublicEvents@gmail.com . If you prefer to keep your requests anonymous, we will of course respect that.

On Pentecost (5th June 2022) and the day OLM celebrated FHC, the dove in the stained glass window lit up just while we were invoking the Holy Spirit.
It was a beautiful, joyous, blessed, spirit-filled mass! Thank you for your prayers.
