2009 Lenten Mission “The Divine Mercy” 3/15 thru 3/18 at 7PM


Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, 701 W. Plainfield Road, Darien Illinois, 60561, will be holding its 2009 Lenten Mission titled “The
Divine Mercy”
from Sunday, March 15th through Wednesday, March 18th.  The evening sessions will begin at 7:00 PM in the Church.

Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC will be the Lenten Mission Master. Fr. Seraphim is the current “Fr. Joseph, MIC” (honorary title of the
director of the Association of Marian Helpers).

A familiar face to EWTN viewers from his appearances on instructive and inspirational programs dealing with the Divine Mercy Message and
devotions, as revealed to Saint Maria Kowalska, Fr. Michalenko has been involved in spreading this message for 50 years.

For more than 20 years, Fr. Michalenko was vice-postulate for North America for the Canonization Cause of Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska,
the “Secretary” and Apostle of Jesus (The Divine Mercy) and….God’s gift to our time,” Pope John Paul II canonization homily.

Fr. Seraphim was a witness to the miracle attributed to Saint Faustina’s ntercession that opened the way for her Beatification in 1993, as well
as the coordinator of the efforts that served to verify that miracle and second one which made possible the adding of the Religious Sister to
the list of Saints on April 30, 2000.
