Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, 
I will stand between My Father and the dying person, 
not as the just Judge but as the merciful Savior" (Diary, 1541).




Through this devotion, we implore God’s mercy and profess our trust in Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who Himself, gave instructions to St. Faustina Kowalska,  to tell the people about His unfathomable ocean of mercy.


Every Friday, at 3:00 pm, the Divine Mercy Chaplet is prayed in the Chapel. The Feast of the Divine Mercy is celebrated on the Sunday after Easter Sunday.

Daily Rosary: The Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is prayed daily after the 7:15 and 8:30 morning Masses in the Chapel,  after the 8:00 morning Mass on Saturdays in the Chapel, and on Sundays, after the 7:30 Mass in the Church. Our Lady, herself, when she appeared at Lourdes and Fatima, encouraged the praying of the Rosary.


Other Rosary Groups: 

At other times, various groups also pray the Rosary, either in the Chapel or at the St. Padre Pio Plaza. The St. Padre Pio Rosary Group offers the Rosary in Italian and the Rosary of Roses Group offer prayers in Polish


Until there is peace in the world, our prayers continue.

Every First Wednesday of the month, at 6:45 pm, a Peace prayer service is held in the Chapel.

The service includes praying the Holy Rosary, with songs and meditations. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is offered as the priest’s schedule allows. This is another wonderful opportunity to spend time with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and to pray for world peace. 

This movement was started by Fr. Don Gobbi, who during a pilgrimage in Fatima in May 1972, while praying in the Little Chapel of Apparitions for Priests, heard an interior voice (also known as  a locution)  urging him to have confidence in the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Blessed Virgin Mary asked for a cenacle of prayer and consecration to her Immaculate Heart to help bring peace to the world. Fr. Gobbi received locutions from the Blessed Mother from 1973 to 1997, which were compiled in the Marian Movement of Priest’s Book.


We gather every Tuesday morning after the 8:30 Mass in the Chapel to pray for the Pope in union with the priests around the world, we say the Act of Consecration and read the messages and discuss how it applies to our daily life.


Come join us. You will be richly rewarded.
