Divine Mercy Sunday

Posted On: Friday, April 17, 11:44 pm

This Sunday, April 19, 2020 is Divine Mercy Sunday! We have lots of (virtual) celebrations planned to help you partake in the day from your homes!

First, please read this letter from Bishop Brennan 

If you want to learn more about the history of Divine Mercy Sunday, we suggest checking out this article, as well as this page from the USCCB.

In addition to (virtual) Mass from Our Lady of Perpetual Help this weekend, we encourage you to check out the offerings from The National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. You can tune in from The National Shrine’s Facebook page, or via Saint Gabriel Radio and EWTN.

We will be praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet as a parish, led by the Shappert Family, live on Facebook at 3 pm on Sunday. Even if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can join us at this link

We can all still celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday and all that it entails from a spiritual perspective, even from our homes! Instead of confession, the faithful can make an act of perfect contrition. And instead of receiving communion, we can make a spiritual communion, which is no less efficacious than a physical communion. In doing this and partaking in celebrations of the day, we may obtain the plenary indulgence associated with the Feast.
