Divine Mercy Sunday

On April 16, 2023, the Second Sunday of Easter (or Sunday of Divine Mercy) Please join us at 3:00 PM in the church for Exposition of the  Blessed Sacrament and praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Jesus said to St. Faustina, “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of mercy upon the souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet … Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy.”
