Happy Easter once again. I hope you’re having a great week.
This Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. It is a special opportunity to reflect upon, receive, and dedicate ourselves to receiving God’s merciful love and sharing the same with others. For more information about the feast and devotion itself, click here.
We are all in need of God’s merciful love, and we know the world could use God’s mercy in a special way during this time. This would be a great way for us to obtain special peace and forgiveness for our sins.
Here is the schedule for Saint Timothy’s:
Confessions: Offered between 9:00-9:45 A.M. and immediately after the 10:00 A.M. Mass.
Divine Mercy 101 DVD: 2:00 P.M. Wondering what this is all about? Have you heard about the Divine Mercy chaplet or devotion but never knew how to pray it or why it’s important? Come watch the video. Many who have seen it were deeply moved, as the DVD describes situations and stories familiar to all of us where God’s mercy is needed in a special way.
Prayer Service including Exposition/Adoration, Chaplet, Diary of Saint Faustina Readings, Divine Mercy Consecration, and Benediction: 3:00 P.M. This is when we will gather as a parish to pray and celebrate the devotions in a special way. Deacon Freeman will lead the devotions.
As you may know, a special indulgence is able to be obtained on this day, which forgives all punishment owed to sin under the conditions of Mercy Sunday. One of those conditions is to go to confession. Please note that a confession 20 days before or after the devotion suffices to meet this requirement. If you have gone during that time period or plan to go, you have already met the condition and would not need to go to confession on Divine Mercy Sunday itself.
We hope to see you at the devotions and other events as we celebrate Mercy Sunday in this Year of Mercy.
