The Estancia Valley Catholic Parish (EVCP) Divine Mercy Ministry’s (DMM) mission is to proclaim to its parishioners, community, co-workers, and families the Good News; God loves us-and his mercy is greater than any of our sins, if we would only turn with trust to Him.
1) The DMM recognizes and reveres God’s merciful love as seen in the Holy Eucharist, the Sacrament of Mercy, and gratefully receives His mercy and graces so that God’s mercy can flow out to all His children.
2)The DMM encourages and fosters a deeper devotion to Divine Mercy through the forms of devotion: Eucharistic Adoration, veneration of the Image of Divine Mercy, celebration of the Feast of Mercy (Divine Mercy Sunday), praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Novena to the Divine Mercy at 3:00 p.m.(the Hour of Great Mercy)and celebration of the Divine Mercy Holy Hour.
3)The DMM intercedes on behalf of the sick and dying within the EVCP by praying the Chaplet daily, so that Jesus will stand by their side before His Father, not as a just judge, but rather as a merciful Savior.
Summation of the DMM mission is the gaining of more souls for Christ through imparted graces of Divine Mercy, through charitable acts of mercy.
