St Michael StatuePRAYER OF SAINT MICHAEL

    Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the

    wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:

    and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell

    Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

DivineMercyGraphicOn the Second Sunday of Easter of the Jubilee Year 2000, at the Mass for the canonization of Saint Faustina Kowalska, Pope John Paul II proclaimed to the world that “from now on throughout the Church this Sunday will be called  Divine Mercy Sunday.”

As we approach Divine Mercy Sunday, please join us in praying that all people, of all nations, would strive to know God’s will and seek out the realization of God’s love for everyone.  We ask, with Saint Faustina, that more people can be “greatly enlightened concerning the things of God” (Diary 1911).

“That the world and the Church be reminded of the truth of God’s mercy for every person, as revealed in Holy Scripture and proclaimed on Divine Mercy Sunday, we pray to the Lord.”

On this special Sunday, April 27th we will celebrate at 2 pm in the church with singing of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3 pm followed by Benediction. Confessions will also be available starting at 2 pm. Please join us.


THERE WILL BE A MOVIE SHOWN IN PAC HALL ON DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY, APRIL 27 AT 12:30 PM. You are invited to come and see the movie Faustina by Jerzy Lukaszewicz. Dorota Segda was voted top actress of the year by European film critics for her stunning portrayal of Sister Faustina.

Rose Marie Raimondi, wife of Daniel
