April 27th Is Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine Mercy

In the 1930's, Jesus revealed to Saint Faustina Kowalska in Poland the Image of Divine Mercy, the Chaplet prayer, a request for daily remembrance of his death at 3 o'clock. Jesus also asked that the Sunday after Easter be established as the Feast of his Divine Mercy. Sister Faustina was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2000.

The image of Divine Mercy shows the risen Christ coming through the doorway as he first appeared to His disciples following his resurrection from the dead. Then, as now, His message is Peace and Forgiveness. At all of the Masses this weekend we will celebrate Jesus' promise of Divine Mercy, revealed through Saint Faustina, with a special focus at the 11:30 A.M. Mass, during which the Chaplet of Divine Mercy will be sung.

Confirmation Mass

You too are living stones, built as edifice of spirit.
1 Peter 2:5

You form a building which rises on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
Ephesians 2:20

Here you build a temple of living stones, and bring the Church to its full stature as the body of Christ throughout the world, to reach its perfection at last in the heavenly city of Jerusalem.
Preface for the Dedication of a Church

Inspired by these quotations, our WEB pages are intended to strengthen unity and improve communication within our parish, and establish bonds with other "living stones," Christian communities throughout the world.

We are building this WEB site in a spirit of "monastic simplicity." Our goal is not an award-winning presentation; it is rather to help our faith community and others see our place more clearly in "the temple of living stones," "the body of Christ throughout the world." As the building of this "temple" is in progress, so is the building of this WEB site. Comments and suggestions are welcome, both to improve communication within the parish, and to bond together with Christian communities throughout the world.
