Divine Mercy Sunday services will be on April 15

Divine Mercy Sunday services are scheduled on April 15 at parish churches across the archdiocese. All services are open to the public.

The late Pope John Paul II instituted the observance of Divine Mercy Sunday—which is based on the visions of St. Faustina Kowalska, a member of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy—on the first Sunday after Easter.
