Divine Mercy Chaplet & Celebration
Divine Mercy Chaplet
Every Day from Good Friday until Divine Mercy Sunday at 3:00 pm
In 1935, St. Faustina received a vision of an angel sent by God to chastise a certain city. She began to pray for mercy, but her prayers were powerless. Suddenly she saw the Holy Trinity and felt the power of Jesus’ grace within her. At the same time she found herself pleading with God for mercy with words she heard interiorly: “Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. (Diary, 475)
Divine Mercy Celebration
Sunday, April 16, 3:00pm
The story of Divine Mercy Sunday, also known as ‘the Feast of the Divine Mercy,’ is thousands of years old. However, the official recognition of the day was only authenticated by the Vatican in 2000. Pope John Paul II declared the Sunday after Easter to be called “Divine Mercy Sunday.” Since that declaration, it has been marked in the General Roman Calendar as a religious observance celebrated by Catholics worldwide.
Join us for a prayer service for God to grant upon the world his Divine Mercy in atonement for our sins.
