Divine Mercy Sunday, April 28:
Join us at 1:00 pm on April 28th for a Holy Hour of Adoration, Chanting and Praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
A Plenary Indulgence may be gained by the faithful in connection with the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday. This indulgence applies to those faithful who accomplish the following criteria:
Be in a State of Grace (detachment from sin)
Have sacramentally confessed your sins within a month (before or after)
Pray for Pope’s intentions (in the bulletin 1st and last Sunday each month)
Most of us have been doing this all through Lent, so come and receive this indulgence as we revere the Blessed Sacrament and pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet!
Ministry Fair after all Masses April 27 & 28!
“We are moved by the Spirit to serve others.”
Come and see the opportunities to put your faith in action here at St. Francis and in our surrounding community! You committed to spend time learning and growing in faith in the fall. You committed to our offertory and are making our mission possible:
To Make Disciples and Disciple Makers
. The ministry fair will have many opportunities to take the next step in service and leadership in our various ministries from altar serving to jail ministry, from leading discipleship groups to serving the poor and so much more. Come to Johnson Hall to see how you can serve the Lord in a new way.
