Divine Mercy

 

Through His instruction to St. Faustina, Jesus provided a beautiful novena and Divine Mercy Sunday to focus us on that unconditional love.  He knows our sins and wants our misery.  The Novena begins on Good Friday (April 7) at 1:00pm and then continues Monday - Saturday (April 8-15) at the Divine Mercy Hour of 3:00pm finishing on Divine Mercy Sunday (April 16th) with a celebration of the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3:00pm.  (The novena and Chaplet are prayed in the Church.) The Chaplet on Divine Mercy Sunday will be sung. If you have attended in the past welcome once again.  If you have never trusted and prayed for this gift, come and experience this healing prayer.
