Divine Mercy Sunday—April 28– Join St. James for a Divine Mercy Holy Hour, 3:00 pm Today

It is important for the faithful to come to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday in a state of grace having sincerely repented of all sins. Worthily receive Holy Communion on this day and be granted “complete forgiveness of all sins and punishment” (Diary, 300). Place complete trust in Jesus, venerate the Image of the Divine Mercy, and be merciful to others through our actions, words, and prayers on their behalf. Holy Father St. Pope John Paul II granted a plenary and a partial indulgence to the devout observance of Divine Mercy Sunday. It can be offered for the sake of souls suffering in purgatory even while at one and the same time, you are receiving for yourself the “extraordinary grace” from receiving Holy Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday.  What a tremendous opportunity it is to receive a special outpouring of God’s mercy, both upon oneself and for others, all on the same day!  (See pamphlets at the church doors or contact Jerry Schmitt at 385-0513 for more information.)
