One of God's commands was,
"Call upon My mercy
on behalf of sinners."
The earliest element of the Devotion to the Divine Mercy revealed to St. Faustina was the Image. On February 22nd, 1931 Jesus appeared to her with rays radiating from His heart and said,
Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus I trust in You. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and throughout the world.

The inspiration for this group comes from the diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska. God commanded her to write down everything He told her, most of it relating to His Divine Mercy.
Win Souls for God
The purpose of each gathering is to bring souls, including our own and the souls in purgatory, to God, through prayers for conversion of souls and prayers for release of souls in Purgatory. Come. Bring your beads for the chaplet and bring your friends. All are welcome, including young adults and teens.
The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy
Jesus said to Blessed Faustina Kowalska,
"Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will receive grace from My infinite Mercy."
This prayer is said using Rosary beads.
Hold the cross in your hand
and make the Sign of the Cross:
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
Say The Our Father:
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Say The Hail Mary:
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed are You among women and blessed is the fruit of Your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Say The Apostles’ Creed:
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into the dead. One the third day He rose again. He Ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
On the first Rosary Mystery beads
say the following prayer:
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world
On the Hail Mary beads say the following prayer:
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Repeat step 5 and 6 till you complete the cycle around the Rosary
Ending prayer, (say three times):
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.
