Who are The Fathers of Mercy?
The Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy was founded in 1808 originally under the title of the "Missionaries of France". The community was founded for the purpose of re-evangelizing the French people after the Catholic Faith had been subjected to years of attacks and persecution during the French Revolution. It is now an exclusively American community. The Generalate of the community is located a few miles outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. The primary apostolate of the Fathers of Mercy is to conduct parish missions and retreats, which are now given throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia.
