Faith: Feast of Divine Mercy

(Barbara Ragsdale)

All are invited to attend the annual Feast of Divine Mercy services at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church on Sunday, April 16, starting at 2:30 p.m.  This religious event celebrates Jesus’ offering His mercy, powerful graces and love freely to His followers, as told to Saint Faustina Kowalska, a Polish Sister to whom He appeared.

Asked by The Lord to spread word of His absolutely free Divine Mercy, Sr. Faustina spent her life doing just as requested. Jesus appeared to her in the image pictured above on the Altar at Sacred Heart of Jesus, saying that the white rays depict the Water of Baptism which cleanses the soul, while the red rays represent the Precious Blood which He shed on the Cross to save humanity.

Held each year on the first Sunday after Easter, everyone is welcome to attend the service and seek Jesus’ Divine Mercy, lovingly and freely given to His believers.
