Divine Mercy Sunday Holy Hour
This year for Divine Mercy Sunday, we will have a Holy Hour in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Sunday, April 11th. The Divine Mercy Chaplet will be prayed starting at 3:30 pm, and then we will end with Benediction at 4:00 pm. I certainly encourage you to consider praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet novena as well if you are interested, which begins Friday, April 2nd and continues for 9 straight days ending on Saturday, April 10th. We will have copies of this novena at the back of the church, but here is a link to a website as well: https://www.thedivinemercy.org/message/devotions/novena/.
This powerful devotion, as well as the witness of St. Faustina Kowalska, can transform our hearts and help us to realize the closeness and personal nature of God's mercy.
The Book of the Month - April
"The Book of the Month series here at Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic Church is a faith formation opportunity for anyone at anytime! The book will be selected by Fr. Ben and published about two weeks before each month begins, and this gives everyone time to purchase it if they so desire for that particular month. There is no commitment, and you may join in or choose to forego any month and at any time. With the current restrictions, there will be a Zoom meeting to hear a summary and then discuss the book towards the end of each month, and you can simply join the email list to receive this Zoom meeting information by contacting the office. You can certainly join the Zoom meeting even if you didn't read part or any of the book, and the basic summary and Q&A will be published afterwards on our Facebook and YouTube webpages. Reading books is one way God can transform our hearts! God Bless you, and let's pray for each other during this time! - Fr. Ben Dunkelberger."

For the month of April, we will be reading the book Into His Likeness by Edward Sri. As we journey through Holy Week and into the Easter season, this book is a very fruitful and enjoyable reflection on Jesus' primary call for all of us to become disciples. What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? Also, in this midst of this adventure, how do we avoid pitfalls, renew our perspective, and use practical tips to follow Jesus in our current modern culture. In becoming a disciple of Jesus, our lives are meant to be filled with Divine encounters with God and leads to transformation, which can happen in surprising and fulfilling ways!
