Divine Mercy Sunday

My Dear People,

Divine Mercy Sunday was instituted by Pope John Paul ll before He died. St. Faustina was given the special grace to see and hear Jesus during her lifetime. Faustina relays in her writings, that no sin is greater than Jesus' Divine Mercy. It was Our Lord's desire for the Sunday after Easter to be established as a universal day in the Church where everyone might benefit from the prayers and indulgences of Holy Mother Church.

When praying the Mercy Chaplet before the Blessed Sacrament, and receiving Holy Confession within a week of the Feast, one will receive full pardon and freedom from the temporal punishment due to our sins on that day. Please join us this Sunday afternoon for this great grace of the Church.

May we learn to see all of our blessings as abundant fits from God. Placed in our hands so that we may use them for the benefit of all God's people.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark

We have so many blessings we don't remember about! If we would remember about most of them we would be much happier!
