DIVINE MERCY DEVOTIONS

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is prayed in the Divine Mercy Chapel Monday through Saturday after 8 am Mass and the Rosary. It is offered for the conversion of sinners, those who will die that day, the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and special intentions.

The Catholic Daughters conducts the Novena to the Divine Mercy on Good Friday at 3:00 pm--the Hour of Mercy-- and continues each afternoon through the Saturday vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday, the week after Easter. Per Jesus' request, the image of Divine Mercy, bearing the inscription "Jesus, I Trust in You," is venerated during the Feast Day Mass.

The devotion follows the Lord's revelation to St. Faustina in 1931 that God’s greatest attribute is His Mercy.
