Pope Francis has declared 2015-2016 the Year of Mercy! During this extraordinary Jubilee the Church will be learning about, receiving, and giving mercy.
What is a Cenacle?
Cenacle means "upper room." The Divine Mercy Cenacle is named for the upper room that Jesus met with his disciples for the Last Supper. Just as the disciples sat and listened to Jesus in that upper room, participants in the cenacle will listen to Jesus through scripture, the Catechism, diary of St. Faustine, and prayer.
As we conclude this Year of Mercy, it is the perfect time to learn about mercy and about God’s desire for each of us. The Divine Mercy Cenacle is a prayer group dedicated to learning about and praying for mercy.Through scriptural emersion, the study of St. Faustina’s diary and unique prayer for Divine Mercy, participants in the Divine Mercy Cenacle will be blessed and will bless our entire community.
Kick-off is Oct. 5, at the HNOJ Fireside Room. The Divine Mercy Cenacle meets bi-weekly on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. The cost is $25 for books and materials. Paper form available in the parish office, or online at https://hnoj.weshareonline.org/DivineMercyCenacle.
