Divine Mercy Sunday at Queen of Heaven Parish
April 24 @ 2:30 pm
Divine Mercy Sunday will be celebrated by
Catholics on April 24. The prayer service begins at 2:30 pm with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
At 3 pm, the Divine Mercy Chaplet will be prayed, followed by benediction of the Blessed Sacrament
and veneration of the Divine Mercy image. Social follows.
This celebration was declared by His Holiness Saint John Paul II in 2000 as requested of St. Faustina,
and recorded in her diary, to be held the first Sunday after Easter at the 3 o’clock hour, the appointed
time of Christ’s death. The 600-page diary of Polish nun Faustina Kowalska recorded the revelations
she received about God’s mercy. The message was simply to ask for mercy from God, be merciful to
others and completely trust in Jesus. More information: 330-896-2345;
