Check the monthly parish newsletter or our parish bulletin or calendar for details about the monthly date and time.
PRAY THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET
Another type of prayer using your Rosary is the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Never heard of it? Click HERE for a handy instruction sheet. The message of The Divine Mercy is simple: God loves us – all of us. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.
