I am a parishoner of Sacred Heart-St. Williams in Troy NY, yes, Father Gary Mercure is OUR pastor. For all of you "people" accusing him of these accqusations, God forgive you. Why did you wait SO long to come out? Fr. Gary has done so much for so many helping the poor, reaching out to the less fortunate, and I could go on and on. With all the good he has done not in the church; but for my family and the parishoners of our churches. I know he will be cleared of these "accquastions". I am sure there will be "doubters", again God forgive them too. I will always remember how church was a pleasant experience upon entering when Fr. Gary had mass, however, due to people who are casting stones, our masses are not and will never be the same do to one thing- the unbelievable "stories" you have made up, or relatives telling you these heartless lies. Again GOD FORGIVE YOU!
Why would anyone make this story up? Men don't go around making molestation stories up.

i wonder if anyone every thought about where gary nercure came from.
he was born as all of us were.
he was not born a child molester.
that was learned.
gary went to st marys
who was his teacher.
gary was a little altarboy once.
how did he become a pervert?

Gar was molested so it's a damn shame his molester or molesters didn't get held accountable. There should be an asterisk for anyone committing rape if he/she was raped. This is learned behavior and this is why they are pedophiles. In other words, Mercure's sentence shojuld be at least cut in half! I say this proudly and with no shame. If he's guilty, and probably is, then I wish Gar spoke about the abuse he endured as a child! The pathetic US sysytem would not care though and just disregard it! He was robbed from his childhood too, you selfish jerks, who made charges against Gar!

Again... I say... you don't have proof that I got any check... there is/was and won't be a check for me!!!!
and BTW... as far as Gar being molested as a child... Two wrongs don't make a right. HE IS/WAS wrong and he is/should be paying for it!!!!

We saw Gar Christmas Day. He was expecting us. We brought him Turkey, stuffing, ice cream, and colas.

Did you bring back any innocence of the boys he raped??? Did he tell you to drop off any apologies the the families of those he molested? Did he admit to any of his devastation? Just think only 16 more Christmas's before he can come back!!!
