Divine Mercy devotions planned for Sunday, April 24

In a series of revelations to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska in the 1930s, our Lord called for a special feast day to be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter.  Today, we know that feast as Divine Mercy Sunday, named by Pope St. John Paul II at the canonization of St. Faustina on April 30, 2000. 

In recognition of this very special day, parishioners will pray devotions for Divine Mercy, beginning at 3 pm in our church with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The service will include exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and veneration of the Divine Mercy image. Please join us!

To fittingly observe the Feast of Mercy, we should:

  1. Celebrate the Feast on the Sunday after Easter (or its Vigil).
  2. Sincerely repent of all our sins.
  3. Place our complete trust in Jesus.
  4. Go to Confession, preferably before the Feast.
  5. Receive Holy Communion on the day of the Feast (or its Vigil).
  6. Venerate the Image of The Divine Mercy.
  7. Be merciful to others, through our actions, words, and prayers on their behalf.

To receive the Extraordinary Graces of this Feast, the only condition is to receive Holy Communion worthily on Divine Mercy Sunday (or the Vigil celebration) by making a good confession beforehand and staying in the state of grace and trusting in His Divine Mercy.
