Last year we had a rare opportunity to be spiritually inspired and enlightened by two sisters of the original order Sisters of the Merciful Jesus. This order was started by Father Michael Sopocko, the Christ appointed confessor of St. Faustina. Sr. Pawla and Sr. Emily, who started the first motherhouse of their congregation in the US in Pittsburgh, will be coming back to us to lead us in a parish mini-retreat weekend on February 15-16. The sisters will lead us in prayers, conferences, and insights on the Feast day of Blessed Michael Sopocko. They will speak at all three Masses that Saturday and Sunday as well as lead two conferences. More details will be forthcoming.

On February 11th, the liturgical Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Church also celebrates the World Day of the Sick. On that evening we will celebrate a special Mass in our church with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick at 6:30 pm. Any Catholic with a serious chronic or terminal physical illness, emotional trauma or distress, or spiritual darkness or despair is welcome to come be anointed and receive Holy Communion. A celebration of a prior Sacrament of Reconciliation is also recommended to aid in healing. Confessions will be heard from 5:45 pm – 6:15 pm in the Divine Mercy Chapel.
