Divine Mercy Prayer Group

Saint Faustina was a Polish member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy. In the 1930s she received a message of mercy from the Lord, which she was told to spread throughout the world. This message emphasises faith in the mercy of God, revealed in Jesus Christ and encourages us to reflect this same mercy in our relations with others. The diary of Saint Faustina has become the handbook for devotion to the Divine Mercy.

Divine Mercy Events.

The Divine Mercy Novena takes place on Thursdays at 7.30 p.m. for about 30 minutes and the prayers are based on the model provided by Saint Faustina, including the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.

Each Thursday following the Divine Mercy Novena, there is the Divine Mercy Mass.

"Divine Mercy Sunday", the Sunday following Easter, is observed in this parish with an afternoon of Divine Mercy devotions, concluding with Mass.

The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.
