Catholic Broadcasting Northwest will celebrate its 25th year of broadcasting with a Mass of Thanksgiving Wednesday, Nov. 19 with Archbishop Alexander Sample at St. Mary’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland.

TUALATIN — Pope Francis has focused on mercy and an upcoming celebration here will show the church's considerable thought and prayer on the subject.

The Divine Mercy celebration is set for 2 p.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, April 27, at Resurrection Parish here.

The celebration, presented by Catholic Broadcasting Northwest, will include music by recording artist Donna Cori Gibson, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the sacrament of reconciliation, benediction and a reception.

Admission is free, though a free will offering will be taken to support Catholic radio.
Gibson, a lay Carmelite, sings and talks about the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, devotion to Mary, union with the Lord, and how to pray using Scripture as reference. She has appeared on television and radio worldwide.

Gibson will also lead the Chaplet of Divine Mercy on Saturday, April 26, at the Portland Archdiocesan Youth Pilgrim Walk.

The event coincides with the canonizations of Blessed John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II in Rome. The program is designed to assist the faithful in obtaining a plenary indulgence which can be granted for observing Divine Mercy Sunday.

On the Second Sunday of Easter of the Jubilee Year 2000, at the Mass for the Canonization of St. Faustina Kowalska, Blessed John Paul proclaimed to the world that “from now on throughout the Church” this Sunday will be called “Divine Mercy Sunday.”

"The pope knew that the visions of Christ received by St. Faustina, and the messages and disciplines flowing from them, remain in the category of private revelations," writes Robert Stackpole, director of the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy. "The Church’s doctrine of Divine Mercy, and her liturgical practices are not based on St. Faustina’s revelations: they are based on Holy Scripture, the faith handed down by the apostles, and on liturgical traditions rooted in the worship life of the ancient, apostolic communities."

Stackpole says Divine Mercy Sunday is a kind of summary of the whole paschal mystery, through which God's merciful love shone forth.
