Divine Mercy Sunday Eucharistic Procession

Eucharistic Procession for Divine Mercy Sunday

Following Mass at 10:00 a.m., in honor of it being the Second Sunday of Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday, we will process all the way around our Parish Boundary (21 Mile road trip, or just about 16 square miles) with The Holy Eucharist and this list of Sacred Relics:
  1. The Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima
  2. A Bone Relic of St. Faustina
  3. A Bone Relic of St. Therese of Lisieux
  4. A piece of the True Cross
  5. An image of the Divine Mercy
The Procession in vehicle will take place as depicted in the map below. The purpose of the pilgrimage is to accomplish the following:
  1. To Bless and Consecrate our Parish and Parish Family (and extended Families) to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to the Divine Mercy of Jesus
  2. To bless Northwestern Community Hospital (we called the chaplains and they were happy to receive us to bless the building and staff and patients from a distant and safe location)
  3. To bless the Little Sisters of the Poor and their staff and residents (also spoke with Mother already)
  4. To Bless all our parishioners with the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and our Blessed Mother in honor of Divine Mercy Sunday, for health, protection, healing, and peace.

To Maintain Social Distancing etiquette we will remain in the vehicle (where both the statue and the Blessed Sacrament will be visible through the large windshield) and exit only to bless certain places (particularly health-care related locations)

Some further notes:

The whole event will be video-taped both live-streamed through YouTube (thanks for all the subscribing work and advertising!) and video tape (for editing and distributing in the near future).
