We invite you to participate in the rich liturgical life of Mother of Divine Mercy Parish throughout the year. Please see the Calendar for all schedules.
Some traditional liturgical practices at our three churches may be new for you to discover, for example: receiving Holy Communion at the Communion rail; the use of incense; sacred music that includes traditional hymns, sacred polyphony and Gregorian chant; the use of traditional Latin (specifically at the noon Mass at St. Josaphat); and at some Masses the priest offering Mass facing ad orientem (toward the east) rather than versus populum (toward the people). You may also hear the Propers of the Mass chanted in Latin or English; the Propers are liturgical texts that are too often neglected - the Introit (Entrance Chant), Gradual, Alleluia, Offertory Chant, and the Communion Chant. The text of the Propers change according to the liturgical calendar, whereas the Ordinary (Kyrie, Gloria, Creed, Sanctus and Benedictus, and Agnus Dei) remain constant.
Please join us for Holy Mass at our two beautiful churches.
