Divine Mercy Sunday
As many of you know, and which yours truly neglected to mention previously, the Novena leading up to Divine Mercy Sunday began on Good Friday. Here is a partial listing of observances and devotions that will take place at some of our area parishes on Sunday, April 11th, Divine Mercy Sunday.
St. Monica's Church at 17th and Ritner Streets, Philadelphia
A Holy Hour will take place between 3 and 4 pm in the Upper Church with Exposition and Benediciton of the Most Blessed Sacrament and chanting of the chaplet of Divine Mercy
St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church at 9th and Watkins Street, Philadelphia
Procession, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Veneration of the Divine Mercy Image at 3 pm followed by the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, Rosary, quiet adoration, Benediction at 5:25pm and Mass at 6pm. Confessions will heard throughout the day.
Divine Mercy Parish 67th and Chester Avenue, Southwest Philadelphia
Bishop Timothy C Senior will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass at 11am for the parish's patronal feast. A reception will follow with opportunity to greet the Bishop.
Remember that a plenary indulgence is granted to the faithful who devoutly receive Holy Communion, go to confession and venerate the image of the Divine Mercy on this Sunday. The usual conditions of no attachment to sin and the offering of prayers for the intention of the Holy Father apply. Our Lord promised His immeasurable graces and mercy even to the most hardened sinner who would just once recite the Chaplet to Divine Mercy.
