Don’t Miss Divine Mercy Sunday!

I’ve been praying the Divine Mercy Novena since Good Friday. (I’m grateful to those who are praying along with me!)

Those praying the novena know it ends on April 27th, the day before the Feast of Mercy.

Have you heard of this feast?

I’d like to tell you about this special day because I don’t want you to miss out!

  • How one participates in it

The Holy Name of Jesus

The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus in the Roman Catholic Church. Today, January 3rd we observe the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus.

Many feasts occur during this season, including:
