Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine_Mercy_JesusJoin us for an hour of prayer and reflection
Sunday, April 28, 2:00pm
St. Paul Church

The message of The Divine Mercy is simple.  It is that God loves us – all of us, and 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.
