A Message from Father Tom

A Message from Fr. Tom

As you can see, from the messages from Pope Francis and Bishop DiMarzio, (see below), May is Mary’s month.  Please pray the rosary every day for the end of this pandemic and for the Consecration of our nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary—this Consecration was re-done by the bishops in America at 3pm on Friday, May 1st, 2020.  Many of you watched this beautiful ceremony via television or internet.  Remember that Divine Mercy Parish also was Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Pray the Rosary and do acts of penance for sinners—pray for our conversion, the conversion of sinners and the Consecration of Russia.  Recall that it was a Communist system where this virus began.  We can clearly see that the errors of Russia have spread throughout the world via this Atheistic ideology which has shed so much innocent blood and the cause of so much suffering throughout the world.

Our Lady of the Rosary Pray for Us!!!

Adoration at All Three Churches of Divine Mercy Parish/Front Entrance Vestibule

Saturday’s from 10am to 1pm in the vestibule of all three of our churches we will expose the Blessed Sacrament.  A priest will be on duty at all three locations during these three hours.  We invite people to walk by and pray on our sidewalks during these hours.  At all times—of course—we will adhere to safe social distancing practices.  Come by to the front entrance of our churches.  In addition to Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, we will offer—if requested—Confession.  Again, we will use the safe distancing practices used on past occasions (priest and penitent wear a mask and keep a safe distance of at least 6 feet).  As your pastor, I have decided to continue this outreach and encouragement to our community.  We must never forget that in the darkest hours—our God is with us and present to us offering us the help and grace we need to face this difficult times.
