April 11th is Divine Mercy Sunday, a feast established by Pope St. John Paul II. The feast is a time when the entire Catholic Church is invited to celebrate God's mercy, as shown through the ministry and sacrifices of His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus appeared to Sister Faustina Kowalksa with rays radiating from His Heart. The two rays denote Blood and Water.
Help us celebrate the Feast of the Divine Mercy and join us in the Chapel for the Divine Mercy Chaplet on Sunday, April 11th at 3:00 pm.

Learn more about the Divine Mercy Devotion and place your innermost trust in Jesus and permit him to fill you with the graces He so wants for all of us. Lord, as You guided St. Faustina, guide us in spreading the message of Your mercy.
Our Lord chose a young Polish nun known as Saint Faustina to teach us to fully place our trust in Him. On February 22nd, 1931, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with Him a wonderful message of Mercy for all mankind.
He revealed to her that His mercy and forgiveness has no bounds. He forgives us and offers us His Divine and true friendship.
It is a message reminding us that as our Lord forgives us, we too must forgive others. Through His inspiration, Saint Faustina explained that His mercy is without limits and available to each and every one of us. God loves us no matter what sins we have committed. He wants us to know that His mercy is greater than our sins and that we can place our trust in Him.
The devotion of Divine Mercy requires us to dedicate ourselves to God's Mercy, to place our trust in Him and be grateful for His Divine Mercy. We are also required to show acts of mercy towards others.
A popular devotion related to the Divine Mercy is to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day at 3 o'clock to experience true trust, true peace, and true love. You can find the Chaplet online http://www.thedivinemercy.org/message/devotions/praythechaplet.php
Although the Chaplet can be said anytime, Our Lord asked specifically that it be prayed at 3pm (the Hour of Divine Mercy, which is the hour that He died). Also, He ordered that a Novena of Chaplets be prayed from Good Friday to Easter Saturday (the day before Divine Mercy Sunday) for certain intentions that He gave.
