Welcome to April, SJV Community!

 The month of April brings Easter and the end to the season of Lent.  Leading up to Easter, we celebrate special holy days during Holy Week.  Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday (April 10th).  The Palm Sunday Mass is so special as the readings tell the story of the Lord’s passion.  From the evening of Holy

Thursday through evening on Easter is what is known as the Sacred Triduum.  These days commemorate the events of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection.  Many consider Good Friday, when Jesus died on the cross for us, to be the holiest day of the year!   Please see the Holy Week schedule on page 2 and join us at the Parish as we celebrate this Easter

Divine Mercy Sunday


On the Sunday following Easter (April 24th this year), the Church celebrates Divine Mercy Sunday. Jesus appeared to Saint Faustina Kowalska to share and spread the message of his great mercy for all people. Jesus asked that a painting be made that depicts his merciful love.

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is one of the most powerful prayers one can say. Consider saying it on Divine Mercy Sunday! See page 2 for directions for saying the chaplet.
