33 Days to Merciful Love

Join with other young adults from around the Diocese as we journey together through  33 Days to Merciful Love, a consecration to Divine Mercy that draws upon reflections from the "Little Way" of St. Therese.  

Throughout these 33 days you'll discover the power of trust in times of darkness, be inspired to continue striving toward sainthood, and fall in love with the Merciful Love of God while sharing and praying in community with fellow young adults. The consecration starts now and will conclude with a Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday. To register for weekly in-person discussion groups, click  here.

Divine Mercy BookIn addition to prayer and conversation, everyone who registers will be entered to win a copy of  Divine Mercy in My Soul: The Diary of St. Faustina. We hope that you will be able to join us for this special Lenten experience! 

"O blood and water, which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fountain of mercy for us, we trust in you!" (Diary 47).
