YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016
"Pope Francis has invited us to observe a special jubilee Year of Mercy starting December 8, 2015...As we enter this Year of Mercy we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare our hearts, not only to receive the gift of God's mercy, but also for the grace to be able to share that gift of mercy with others...however you prepare, I ask that you lift up your brothers and sisters to the Lord who are most in need of His mercy, and ask God how He might want to use you to be an instrument of His mercy during this special year." Fr. Tim Norris
Please join us each day at 3:00pm to pray the Novena and Chaplet of Divine Mercy as the church bells ring.
You can also listen to the latest "Mercy Minutes," those testimonies given before weekend Masses during the Year of Mercy:
February 2016 "An Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy" - Fr. Mike Schmitz
Watch for more information to become available throughout the year for special Year of Mercy events and opportunities.
