Veneration of the First Class Relic of St. Faustina and the Image of Divine Mercy
Relic of St. Faustina
Since 2017 we have in our church a First Class Relic of St. Faustina. The relic is placed in the side chapel, dedicated to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, in a very special reliquary (converted from the old tabernacle we used in our church before the renovation of the sanctuary). The relic is visible through the glass door. Above it there are images of Divine Mercy, St. John Paul II and St. Sister Faustina.
We hope many pilgrims will visit our chapel and receive many graces through the intercession of Saint Faustina.
Divine Mercy Novena Prayer with the veneration of the First Class Relic of St. Faustina
is prayed in our church every third Friday of each month following 12:10 PM Mass
[Summer – following 8:30 AM Mass]
