Each year on the octave (eighth) day of Easter, we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday! Each year at Easter, we are especially reminded of God’s infinite mercy for us, made known most acutely in the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Of course, we should marvel and immerse ourselves in God’s mercy every day, but this Feast is a particularly appropriate time to remember the great love of the Father. Learn more from Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC above!
At Saint Christopher, we’ll be celebrating Divine Mercy in several ways. Please join us for any and all of them!
- Divine Mercy Novena (begins on Good Friday – April 19) – we’ll be praying the Divine Mercy Novena each day after each Mass at St. Andrew (exceptions: Saturday, April 20 will be at 9:45pm; Monday, April 22 will be at Divine Mercy 101 – see below); If you cannot join us in person, pick up a Novena pamphlet at church and pray at any time!
- Divine Mercy 101 – Monday, April 22 @ 7pm – Join us to learn about what exactly Divine Mercy is, how the devotion started, and how to participate in it. This event is put on by our parish’s Divine Mercy Cenacle, a group of people devoted to praying, studying, and living the Divine Mercy devotion.
- Divine Mercy Sunday – Sunday, April 28 @ 2:30pm – Celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy with our parish! We will have Adoration, a sung Divine Mercy chaplet, and a talk on Divine Mercy. Confessions will also be heard, with Benediction at 3:30pm.
