Discover the solution to bringing Divine Mercy into your parish

What did Jesus tell St. Faustina?

Our Lord revealed to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, in the 1930’s, that He specifically desired a day of mercy celebrated throughout the Church so that thousands, even millions, many of whom may be indifferent to the Gospel, could celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday.

Yet, in the beginning of the Third Millennium, the vast majority of Catholics remain unaware of the message of Divine Mercy, and those who are aware are unsure of how to bring the message to others on the scale Our Lord intends.

You can help fulfill Our Lord’s desire.

A systematic parish program to spread the message of Divine Mercy is needed—a program that can be easily implemented by a core of committed Catholics who want the message to reach the hearts of their fellow parishioners. The Apostolate for Family Consecration (AFC) has developed a unique program to help you do this.

Turn your personal devotion to Divine Mercy into a parish mission with the Day of Grace Parish Mission Program that will draw the faithful into the Sacrament of Penance.

This mission can be held in your parish church on Divine Mercy Sunday, the second Sunday of Easter. It was developed to assist you in providing a deeply spiritual and memorable celebration of Divine Mercy.

Organize a Divine Mercy Sunday parish mission.

The program consists of captivating teaching programs and devotions including:

  • The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
  • The Rosary, with one of the mysteries acted out in movie format
  • An examination of conscience based on the Ten Commandments—we hope the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be made available throughout the day
  • Time for Mercy, produced by the Marian Helpers.

The program normally starts after the last Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday morning and is held in the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord reserved in the Tabernacle, with periodic adoration breaks.
