Roman Catholic Community
in the Davisburg, Mich. Area
The mission of Divine Mercy is to be a growing, faithful, community, striving, with the grace of the Father, to be authentic disciples of Jesus Christ. With the mercy and love of our Lord, we celebrate the sacraments of the Catholic Church prayerfully and with devotion, and we welcome all people to worship with us. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we seek to live a joyful life of sharing the Gospel through charity, stewardship education and evangelization.
In 1999, Adam Cardinal Maida approved the planning of a new parish to begin forming in Davisburg. The parish was recommended as part of a Vicariate of the Lakes Master Plan proposed by the Vicariate Planning Committee chaired by the Vicar, Msgr. Robert Humitz of St. Daniel.In September of 2001 the Archdiocese completed the purchase of 130 acres of land on the south side of Davisburg Road, just west of Ormond Road.
On July 1, 2007 Divine Mercy Parish was created and shortly thereafter, a Building Committee was setup to oversee the process and planning of developing the land and constructing the buildings that will become the physical home of Divine Mercy Parish.
In 2013, the Archdiocese recommended closing the parish due to changes in projected growth in the area and the priest shortage.
We will live on as a vibrant Catholic Community!
