4th Annual St Mark/St James Festival
The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.

“Be Lights of Hope” through giving – Pope Francis
A jubilee year is a special year called by the church to receive blessing and pardon from God and remission of sins. “I am convinced that the whole church — that has much need to receive mercy because we are sinners — will find in this jubilee the joy to rediscover and render fruitful the mercy of God, with which we are all called to give consolation to every man and woman of our time,” Pope Francis said in announcing the year. “Let us not forget that God pardons and God pardons always,” the pope continued. “Let us never tire of asking for forgiveness.” The pope also said he wants the church to live the upcoming holy year “in the light” of Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Luke: “Be merciful, just as your father is merciful”.
