Mark your calendars - Divine Mercy is hosting a parish mission,

 

FAITH IN OUR FAMILIES: Making Room for jesus in our hearts and homes,
Sunday, February 28 - Tuesday, March 2, 2021

 

Led by Fr. Tim Kitzke
 
 

What is a parish mission?

Basically, the parish mission is a "shot in the arm" for our spiritual growth. This is NOT a catechism class or another mass, but rather a time for us to get out of our normal routine and really get to the core of our very being- how to accept and share the immense love that God has for each and every one of us. the mission is a time for grace, a surge of the heart, and a call to repentance and renewal in our own spiritual journey. Think of this as a "mini" retreat, right here in your own parish!
 

What is the purpose of the parish mission?

There are several "fruits" that can be seen as a result of the parish mission. Members will begin to seek the full richness of their faith, and this in turn will embolden them to share the Good News with others. Another fruit is that bonding among parishioners will occur. and make disciples. Another reason for having a parish mission is to encourage each member to engage in deeper prayer and adoration of Christ. Our hope is that this opportunity fosters an even closer friendship with Him.
 

What are the details?

Join us for three days of reconciliation, prayer, adoration, and spiritual reflection, aimed at helping us grow as a family of faith, both as a parish family and in our own homes.
