DIVINE MERCY MINISTRY In 1935, St. Faustina received a vision of an angel sent by God to chastise a certain city. She began to pray for mercy but her prayers were powerless. Until she saw the Holy Trinity and felt the power of Jesus’ grace within her. Prayed on ordinary rosary beads, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is an intercessory prayer. The Divine Mercy Ministry meets on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm in the McKenna Building (second Thursdays in the Day Chapel). Please contact Loreta Young for more information at 210-558-4326.
