Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the Second Sunday of Easter when, in the light of Christ’s resurrection, we are reminded of His great mercy for us and our call to be merciful to one another. On this Sunday we are reminded to ask God for His mercy, be merciful to others, and strive to completely trust in His Son, who is Divine Mercy Incarnate. The message of mercy is that God loves us – all of us, no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive his mercy, and let it flow through us to others. It is a message we can call to mind simply by remembering A–B–C.
A – Always for His Mercy.
God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, asking forgiveness for our sins and asking him to pour out His mercy upon us and the whole world.
B – Be Merciful to Others. God wants us to receive His mercy and then extend His love and forgiveness to other, just as He does.
C – Completely Trust in Jesus. The graces of God’s mercy are dependent on our trust in Him. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive. Pray for mercy and extend mercy to others. Begin each day saying: “Jesus, I trust You!”
     In our neighborhood, Divine Mercy devotions will take place this Sunday at Ss. Robert and William Parish, with confessions 12-2pm and devotions 2-3pm.


Next Sunday, April 15th is the LAST DAY to order and pay for your spring flowers. As the deadline approaches, consider making purchases for your planting needs through the parish this year. The plants are high quality and your purchases support the parish. Order forms and descriptive fliers are available at the entrances to the Church. Return your order in the collection basket, drop it off at the rectory or mail it back. Support your parish and beautify your yard. It’s a win – win.


This year the 50th Wedding Anniversary Mass will be celebrated on Sunday, July 29th at 2:30pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Those who were married in 1968 and would like to participate at this Mass are asked to contact Father Bacevice for a registration form.


This weekend everyone is invited to participate in a family-style Coffee Social after the 10:00 Mass. Bring of plate of honey cake/cookies to the lower hall and come share the Easter season spirit (and your goodies) with your fellow parishioners.

     Now that the celebration of Holy Week and Easter is finished for this year, I have spent some time reflecting on what we did right this year and how we can improve our Holy Week/Easter celebration in the future.

     I was very pleased with the number of participants at our Holy Week/Easter celebrations. Now I would like to know what you thought about our celebration of Holy Week/Easter, and would like to hear your suggestions on improving these celebrations.

     With this bulletin is a brief survey. I invite you to fill it out in the next few weeks. You can return the completed form in the collection basket or drop it at the rectory (either through the mail or dropped in the mail box). You do not have to sign the survey, but I ask you to be open and honest with your responses. I will use your suggestions when we start planning for next year.

     Also, to everyone who worked to make this years celebration a beautiful experience for all who participated - from those who decorated the Church, and planned the celebrations, to those who sang in the choir, acted as lectors, servers and Communion minsters – to all of you I say thank you.
