We are blessed to offer an Open House to you and all visitors to the Divine Mercy Center, newly designated as the “Archdiocesan” Shrine of Jesus The Divine Mercy. Come and enjoy the 13-acre campus from 2-4 p.m. on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 11, with Eucharistic Adoration and an opportunity to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with the Women of Jesus’ Merciful Passion at 3 p.m.
The Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy began in 1935 with the first public display of the image of Divine Mercy, a depiction of Sister Faustina Kowalska’s vision of Jesus. Devotion grew following the 1939 publication of Sister Kowalska’s diaries and Pope John Paul II’s designation of Divine Mercy Sunday, the Sunday after Easter, in 2000.
“We are excited to see the outpouring of Jesus’ Divine Mercy upon this community and the fulfillment of God’s blessings upon this ministry,” said Catherine Lanni, foundress of the Servants of Jesus of The Divine Mercy. “What a blessing it is to continue the work of this ministry which propagates the mercy of God.”
