First Communion This Weekend! We congratulate the second graders from our Wednesday night program who will make their First Communion this weekend. As we see the children all dressed in their finest to receive our Lord, it reminds each of us of the most precious gift that we receive each Sunday when we celebrate Mass.

Divine Mercy Sunday
April 3, 2018
Divine Mercy Sunday Next Sunday! In the year 2000, Pope St. John Paul II proclaimed the Sunday after Easter as Divine Mercy Sunday. At that time, he also canonized a Polish nun, St. Faustina, who had a vision of Jesus in 1932 that has been painted on canvas and is now known as the Divine Mercy image. In the Image, Jesus is shown pointing to his heart with rays of red and white light emanating from him. The rays reflect the blood and water that flowed from his side when he was pierced on Calvary, and the mercy that flows to us from his crucifixion and resurrection. The words “Jesus I trust in you” are written below the image. Next Sunday all are invited to Guardian Angels in Chaska, to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday which will include an unveiling of a large Divine Mercy image that will be permanently placed in the Church. I thank all those who have donated funds for this beautiful image. The day is not just about the image however, but also celebrating the Divine Mercy Devotions that include the Chaplet of Divine Mercy as well as confessions, and a plenary indulgence that is granted for all those participating in confession, communion, and the devotions. Please join us from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM on Sunday, April 8th for this special celebration of Divine Mercy. The pamphlets at the back of church explain more about this devotion which is becoming more and more well-known and practiced throughout the world. We hope you can join us next Sunday! We’ll have extra priests available to hear confessions. Happy Easter! Fr. Deziel & Fr. Galarza
