On the Feast Day of Mercy Sunday, April 12 a Holy Hour Adoration will begin at 1:30 p.m. with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament followed by the Rosary, Silent Prayer, reflections from the Diary of St. Faustina, a special tribute to St. Pope John Paul II, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, ending with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. I will present a relic of St. Faustina for personal veneration. WELCOME EVERYONE.
Why do we have the Feast of Divine Mercy? According to the Diary of St. Faustina our Lord made 14 revelations requesting this feast day be established on the Sunday after Easter Sunday. On April 30, 2000, at the time of the Canonization of St. Faustina, Pope St. John Paul II established this feast day for all the universal Church to celebrate. We also remember that this great Pope in the Catholic Church went home to the Lord on the eve of this great Feast Day in 2005.
Welcome to our Holy Hour celebration on Sunday, April 12 beginning at 1:30 pm. Special welcome to all our youth as well.
