Divine Mercy Sunday
The Second Sunday of Easter is the Feast of Divine Mercy. This Feast was instituted by St. Pope John Paul II in 2000 when he canonized St. Faustina Kowalska. St. Faustina’s Diary, which she kept at the specific request of the Lord Jesus and her confessors, faithfully records all of the Lord Jesus’s wishes and also describes the encounters between her soul and Him.
In her visions, St. Faustina was instructed to “Paint an image according to the pattern you see with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You…” This image has come to be known as the Divine Mercy Image. In the image, Jesus stands with one hand outstretched in blessed, the other touching his chest, from which proceeds beams of coloured light. An explanation of these colours was given to St. Faustina by Jesus himself saying, “The two rays represent blood and water.”

Hospital Ministry to the Sick
Important information for ALL Parishioners!!
The hospital list we draw names from is no longer available to the clergy or the volunteers because of the Privacy Act, which protects the patients’ right to decide if they want a visitation or not. This means the hospital staff will no longer ask your faith when you are admitted.
There are 2 ways you can help us continue our ministry to the sick:
- Notify the hospital admitting staff that you are Catholic.
- If for some reason you are unable to speak for yourself, a family member or friend can notify the hospital or parish office on your behalf at any time during your stay.
- Call the parish office (403-526-2265) and let us know that you are in the hospital and would like to receive Communion and/or a visit from the Catholic community. The Eucharistic ministers will get that information and ensure that you will be on the RC list.
- If you enter the hospital on a weekend, please call Gerry Carter directly at 403-526-7455.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!
