Mother of Mercy
Save our MOM
If Mother of Mercy is demolished, the wrecking crews will be razing one of the few extant historic structures in Pass Christian --- and the oldest church on the Gulf Coast that has remained untouched by renovations.
This would be a bad judgement call and a wrong-doing in light of the fact that if the church is proved structurally sound, it should be preserved. This is a Landmark worth fighting for.
Erected in 1911 --- Damaged by Katrina in 2005
Front Entrance --- Rear of Church
Photos taken on Sep 20, 2005 show little damages to the church building and to the interior of this historic gem.
Donations should be mailed to PO Box 546, Pass Christian, MS 39571 and marked Church, or School, or Cemetery.
