Divine Mercy Novena
Jesus asked St. Faustina that the Feast of the Divine Mercy (the Sunday following Easter, this year it is Sunday, April 19) be preceded by a Novena of Chaplets to the Divine Mercy, which would begin on Good Friday. “The Lord told me to say this chaplet for nine days before the Feast of Mercy. It is to begin on Good Friday. ‘By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls.'" (Diary 796)
Please join our parish in praying this novena beginning Friday, April 10. Instructions and intentions can be found on the Marian Father's Divine Mercy website. Novena pamphlets are available in the church gathering space. You can also pray along with Relevant Radio 1330 AM every day at 3 PM or with the Relevant Radio app.
