Divine Mercy Sunday April 28th
3 pm Holy Hour & Service

Why Divine Mercy?
Divine Mercy Sunday is the Feast of God's Mercy and Love. This Feast Day is based on the revelations of Jesus to St Faustina Kowalska in the 1930's. Her diary contains more than 600 pages of recorded messages that she received regarding God's Endless Mercy.
The mission the Lord gave to St Faustina was to remind the world of God's Great Mercy and to reveal new forms of devotion to Jesus as "The Divine Mercy".
Jesus wants us to place complete trust in His Mercy and Forgiveness and to understand that His Mercy is greater than any sin we have committed. He wants us to approach Him and receive His Mercy on the Feast of His Mercy.
He asks that we become a vessel of His Mercy by allowing His Mercy to flow through us to others by our Actions, Words and Prayers. This is not a new message but puts a new focus on God's Love and Mercy for Us which is Unlimited and Available to Everyone.
