Dear Divine Mercy Parish Family in Christ, This past weekend I was honored to be able to offer my little niece Lizzy her first holy communion! Another niece, Gabriella, received her first holy communion earlier this summer from me. I wanted to share the good graces with you today. God is good and continues to work His miracles in our midst in these most challenging of days. Count on my prayers for you, that each time you receive communion, it will be like your first, your last, your only time. May God bless you. Fr. Chris
Today, Nature of Fire food truck, a Pittsburgh based non-profit that evangelizes through great food and community, stopped by the Red Door to provide our friends with chicken tacos, beef tacos, or burritos. Also there, were the Sisters of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ from The Ark and The Dove. Sister Angela, Sister Marie Fidelus, and Sister Anna Sophia helped serve the lunches and shared Christ's and Our Blessed Mother's love for each and every one who came by.
The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary celebrates the birth of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Her feast prepares the way for the birth of Christ. Because of her Son's infinite merits, she was conceived and born immaculate and full of grace. She was born to be the mother of the Savior of the world, the spiritual mother of all men, and the holiest of God's creatures.
This past Sunday, our very own Mark Rybicki came into the Church! He was confirmed and received first Holy Communion. It was a special day for Mark and his mother and the entire Divine Mercy Parish community.
