Morning of Mercy


The Archdiocese of Newark Evangelization Commission invite you to Morning of Mercy on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 9.30 AM until 12.30 PM at the Divine Mercy Parish, 232 Central Ave, Rahway. Join us and receive the graces of the Jubilee Year of Mercy!

The Jubilee Year of Mercy invites everyone to receive the grace of a plenary indulgence (that's a full pardon from sin and all its effects) through The Holy Door (which represents the Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope), Mass, Confession, Adoration and various prayers help to make this happen. Special Guest: Msgr Joseph Reilly, Missionary of Mercy
