Auburn parish plans Divine Mercy celebration

In 2000, Pope John Paul II proclaimed the Sunday following Easter to be Divine Mercy Sunday, and parishes around the world will celebrate it on April 3.

Devotion to Divine Mercy began at St. Hyacinth Parish in Auburn a decade before the pope’s proclamation, and this April marks the 15th year parishioners, priests and Catholics from surrounding areas have come together at the church to celebrate this devotion. The celebration will be special this year because the pope has proclaimed 2005 to be the Year of the Eucharist. This year is also the 100th anniversary of St. Hyacinth Parish.

The parish’s celebration will begin with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament after the 10:30 a.m. Mass and will include a sung chaplet of the Divine Mercy and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Worshippers will recite a booklet of prayers at 3 p.m.

For more information, contact the parish at 315/252-7297.
