Today we … honor Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion! 
 
🕍 Get Your Spirituality on! You are  invited to join us for this month’s Imperfect Spirituality Club on Saturday, March 19th, from 10:00am until 12:00 Noon.   Our discussion this month will focus on The Year of Mercy.  We will look at everything from the Corporal Works of Mercy, Spiritual Works of Mercy right up to Saint Maria Faustian, a mystic Polish nun who was visited by Jesus!  Sister Faustina was inspired to keep a record of these visitations, commission a painting of Christ and establish the beautiful devotional, The Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  The Sunday after Easter has been designated Divine Mercy Sunday, so this is a great prelude to a beautiful day! Join us and together we will learn this uplifting prayer and come to understand that by extending mercy, Christ will shield us in His.  There is no greater time for our world to call upon Christ for His mercy. We are already excited in anticipation of seeing you then!  (And of course~ donuts!)
