* Celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy on Sunday April 8, 2018 at 3:00 pm
Calling all parishioners, families and friends to the Feast of Divine Mercy on the Sunday after Easter. Did you know that the Lord said that this feast would one day be the “last hope of salvation”? In the 1930’s, our Lord Jesus Himself requested through St. Faustina that a very special Feast of Divine Mercy be established in His Church and solemnly celebrated on the First Sunday after Easter every year. In the Jubilee Year 2000, after many years of study, St. John Paul II fulfilled the will of Christ by establishing this special Feast of Divine Mercy in the Catholic Church and gave it the name “Divine Mercy Sunday”! By God’s Providence, St. John Paul II died on this feast in 2005.
What is so special about this new Feast of Divine Mercy? It is the promise of total forgiveness of all sins and punishment for any soul who would go to Confession [during Lent] and then receive Jesus in Holy Communion on that very special Feast of Divine Mercy. Why would Jesus offer us something so great at this time? Jesus told St. Faustina that she was to prepare the world for His Second Coming and that He would be pouring out His Mercy in very great abundance before He comes again as the Just Judge and as the very last hope of salvation.
The Feast of Divine Mercy Service will consist of:
- Exposition and Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament
- Recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
- Veneration of the Image of the Divine Mercy
Ask for Mercy. Receive Mercy. Be Merciful.
