Divine Mercy Sunday

divine-mercy-chaplet 23rd April    Ennis Cathedral  2.15 p.m. Devotions, Confessions, Mass and Benediction

The Feast of Divine Mercy is a public feast day formally established by St John Paul 11 in May 2000.   The Divine Mercy Devotion is inspired by the experiences and writings of a Polish nun, Sister Faustina, who died at 33 years of age in 1938 and was canonised in April 2000.  It embraces priests, religious and laity united in their commitment to live mercy in relating to their brothers and sisters, to make the mystery of Divine Mercy known and to invoke God’s mercy for sinners.  Novena of Divine Mercy Starts Good Friday
