Divine Mercy Sunday

The Sunday after Easter is celebrated as Divine Mercy Sunday based on the revelations made to Saint Faustina Kowalska in the 1930's and recorded in her diaries. It was a devotion greatly promoted by Pope Saint John Paul II who designated the Second Sunday of Easter each year to be the Feast of Divine Mercy.

Special devotions will be taking place at various churches in the Archdiocese, among them Saint Mary's, Standishgate, Wigan at 3.00pm; Holy Family, Cale Lane, New Springs, Wigan at 3.00pm; Holy Cross, Corporation Street, St. Helens from 1.30pm; Sacred Heart, Brooke Street, Chorley at 3.00pm; and Saint Mary's, Broadfield Drive, Leyland at 3.30pm. All welcome.
