The Feast of Divine Mercy is·celebrated on the Octave of Easter - the Sunday after Easter Sunday.· Celebrating the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ, as revealed by Christ Himself to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, this feast was extended to the entire Catholic Church by Pope John Paul II on April 30, 2000, the day that he canonized Saint Faustina.
A plenary indulgence (the forgiveness of all temporal punishment resulting from sins that have already been confessed) is granted on the Feast of Divine Mercy if to all the faithful who go to Confession, receive Holy Communion, pray for the intentions of the Holy Father, and "in any church or chapel, in a spirit that is completely detached from the affection for a sin, even a venial sin, take part in the prayers and devotions held in honour of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or reserved in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the merciful Lord Jesus (e.g. 'Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!')."
We thank those who commit to a deeper relationship with Christ and serve the parish with these devotions.
The Mission of these this group is to:
Worship Jesus, who is truly present in the Eucharist.
Deepen our reverence and love for the Body, Blood Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Entrust ourselves to the Divine Mercy of our Lord Jesus.
Increase devotion to Our Lady, the first to bear his real presence in the world.
Devote Friday from 3 -4 pm to pray the Divine Mercy devotion and pray the priestly prayers.
Help us prepare for the Liturgy for Divine Mercy Sunday.· Divine Mercy Sunday falls on May 1, 2011
