Divine Mercy Novena & Sunday Celebration
Divine Mercy Sunday, a feast instituted by Pope Saint John Paul II, is celebrated every year on the Sunday after Easter. The date was determined by the end of the Novena to Divine Mercy, which begins on Good Friday. Christ Himself revealed the Divine Mercy Novena to Saint Faustina on Good Friday 1937 and dictated to her the prayers that make up the novena. The Novena to Divine Mercy begins Good Friday, March 30. Novena brochures are available in the narthex.
