The Seventh Annual Celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday was held Sunday, April 7, at St. Maria’s Goretti Church, Laflin Road, Laflin. The celebration was moved from the traditional Oblates of St. Joseph Seminary because the congregation has been growing.

Cathy Mack, Cennacle Leader of the Eucharistic Apostles of Divine Mercy, coordinated of the feast, the theme of which centered on the celebration of the 75th anniversary of St. Faustina’s entering into Eternal Life. Prior to the service, remarks and excerpts from the Diary of St. Faustina were given by Mack.

The itinerary included: Sacrament of Reconciliation with five priests; Veneration of the Image followed by the Holy Sacrifice of Mass; Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in song, individual blessing of the First Class Relic of St. Faustina.
