Archdiocesan Holy Hour
on Divine Mercy Sunday

The Second Sunday of Easter was established by St. John Paul II as Divine Mercy Sunday. We celebrate the deep mercy of Christ and his revelation of it to St. Faustina Kowalska in the 1930s.

To honor Divine Mercy Sunday, all three bishops will be joining together in a Holy Hour of Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament while praying the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy this Sunday from 2-3 p.m. at St. James Cathedral. The bishops will be praying each decade of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for a different intention: First responders, medical researchers, the deceased and their loved ones, those suffering economic distress, for a deepened protection and promotion of all human life. At the end, Archbishop Etienne will carry the monstrance to the front doors of the Cathedral and bless the Archdiocese with the Blessed Sacrament.

This event will be livestreamed on the Archdiocese of Seattle's Vimeo channel as well as the Facebook page.
