Divine Mercy Sunday

This Second Sunday of Easter April 27 after 1:30 p.m. Mass, we will celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday at the Shrine by praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in the Seton Legacy Chapel. Divine Mercy Sunday was officially proclaimed on April 30, 2000 when St. Faustina Kowalska  was proclaimed a saint. Soon after, in 2002, Pope Saint John Paul II consecrated the world to the Divine Mercy of Jesus. Since the mid-1930s the devotion to the Mercy of Christ has spread throughout the globe. We will not only celebrate this devotion but also the canonization of the Pope that proclaimed and promoted Divine Mercy along with Pope Saint John XXIII, who led the world soon after WWII in mercy and gentleness.

Let the footsteps of the past create a better understanding of today’s journey…
