Are you familiar with Divine Mercy Sunday?

"It is important then that we accept the whole message that comes to us from the word of God on this Second Sunday of Easter, which from now on throughout the Church, will be called ‘Divine Mercy Sunday.'  - Pope John Paul II
Each year, the Sunday after Easter is designated as the Sunday of Divine Mercy – a special day to remind us that the Church is a refuge for sinners.  Fallen away Catholics are urged to return.  In most churches there are special hours of devotion and extended time for confessions.

Our Services begin in about an hour.
“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.  Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.  For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate. - Luke 15:21-24
Blessed beyond measure,
