Church News and Announcements

April 14 at 2:00 pm in the church.

Jesus asked Sr. Faustina to promote the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin Good Friday.  He gave St. Faustina an intention to pray each day of the Novena.  Jesus told her to save for the last day the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent of whom He said: “These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives.  It was on their account that I said: ‘My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.’ The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy.” In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her: “On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.”

Join us on Good Friday April 14 at 2:00 pm in the Church for the first day of the Divine Mercy Novena including devotional prayers.  This service is only twenty minutes.  All materials will be provided.  This Novena ends on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 23 with a 3 pm service in Church.

Each Monday  @ 7 pm ~ Please Join Us

As we prepare for lent, please join us for our Monday novena nights, as we begin the Divine Mercy Novena starting February 13th. Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy. He gave St. Faustina an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena, saving for the last day the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent. In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her: “On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy ... On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.”

The different souls prayed for on each day of the novena are:

DAY 3, Feb. 27 ~ All devout and faithful souls (novena in the church)
DAY 4, Mar 6 ~ Those who do not believe in Jesus and those who do not yet know Him (The Adoration Chapel)
DAY  5, Mar 13 ~ The souls of separated brethren
DAY  6, Mar 20 ~ The meek and humble souls and the souls of children
DAY  7, Mar 27 ~ The souls who especially venerate and glorify Jesus’ mercy
DAY  8, Apr 3 ~ The souls who are detained in purgatory
DAY  9, Apr 10 ~ The souls who have become lukewarm (due to the Chrism Mass @ Cathedral, please pray novena on your own time, in a quiet place)

A new ministry called PRAYER AND MEDITATION has been developed.

Its focus is to encourage parishioners to turn to the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament in fervent prayer and faith, listening to Him as He responds to us in our hearts.  A prayer booklet called “Listen To The Spirit Speak” has been created by parishioner, Mary Knudsen, who has experienced several surgeries and ongoing health problems which made regular attendance at church difficult.  This booklet has been placed in the Chapel for those who visit the Lord there.  It is also available in the narthex for all who wish to take one and use it to help foster quiet prayer and meditation at home.
