Around the Archdiocese of Philadelphia: Divine Mercy Sunday
As previously published, Divine Mercy Sunday will be observed at the Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia starting with a Holy Hour at 2pm, followed by the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 3 pm. The faithful will also have an opportunity to venerate a relic of Pope John Paul II, who will be beatified in Rome on Sunday. The celebrant for the Mass is Father Kevin McGoldrick. The Monastery is located at 66th Street and Old York Road (nearly the end of North Broad Street) and parking is available in the lot adjacent to the Monastery on 66th Street. I'm told the Avila Bookstore will be open following the conclusion of the Mass.
St. Nicholas of Tolentine in South Philadelphia (9th and Watkins Streets) will also hold services observing the Feast of Divine Mercy.
3:00PM Procession and Devotions
3:15PM Chaplet and Confessions Begin
At St. Peter the Apostle Church at 5th Street and Girard Avenue (which is also the shrine of St. John Neumann) the Archdiocesan Boys' Choir will lead the Divine Mercy Chant, followed by the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
If anyone has information about any other observances of Divine Mercy Sunday in the Philadelphia area, let us know in the comments. Thanks.
