Please join us for Divine Mercy Sunday at Saint Adalbert Basilica.

2 pm - Confessions
3 pm - Mass (fulfills your Sunday obligation)

Main celebrant - Fr. Michael Burzynski

Divine Mercy Sunday is an Observance in the Roman Catholic Church in which followers are encouraged to offer forgiveness and reconciliation to all. It is based on visions recorded from St. Faustian Kowalski. In 2000, it was decreed a solemnity, a high feast day, by Pope John Paul II. Roman Catholics are required to attend worship, go to confession, and take Holy Communion.

"The Message of Divine Mercy has always been near and dear to me … which I took with me to the See of Peter and which it in a sense forms the image of this Pontificate." - Pope John Paul II

St. Faustian was a Polish nun who lived in the early 20th century. She had visions much of her life. One that was the most profound was of Jesus, with one hand raised in blessing and with two fingers of his other hand resting on his heart. She said that Jesus asked her to have the image painted, and to include a prayer that said, "Jesus, I trust in you." This is the prayer that Catholics recite on Divine Mercy Sunday.

A piece of Michalina Buczkowska's original wooden cross from St. Adalbert's Cemetery has found a home in St. Adalbert Basilica. During the 2014 dedication of Michalina's new wooden cross, smaller crosses made from the original cross were distributed to those in attendance. One of these has been painted gold and used to replace the cross that was missing from the base of the 6th Station of the Cross - Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus. All fourteen stations now have small gold crosses once again.
