"SPEAK TO THE WORLD ABOUT MY MERCY"

TAKING MERCY TO THE STREETS.....We begin by ministering to our youth on the street with unconditional love and by responding to their needs. We provide hot food, and give out care packages. Care packages include toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair shampoo, bars of soap, school supplies, clothing, and other basic necessities for everyday life.

We establish friendships and offer our youth the Image of Divine Mercy. We present an intimate look at Jesus, a powerful message of God’s extraordinary love, tender mercy, and a trustworthy hope for our youth. It’s important for our youth to know that they are loved by Jesus, and that they can trust in His mercy. This is the greatest truth that moves a young heart to follow Jesus, and begin living a holy life.

We then help our youth to develop their friendship with Jesus through prayer. We begin by helping our youth to pray, to develop their interior prayer life with Jesus. Our focus is on Jesus, The Divine Mercy. Jesus wants to enter into an intimate relationship with His young ones. In prayer, Jesus becomes our constant companion and friend who speaks with us. It is a friendship that begins in the soul with Jesus.

Through prayer, our youth get to truly know Jesus intimately and experience His personal love for them as a trusting friend. Through prayer our youth learn to develop their interior life with Jesus, the ability through grace to speak to Jesus, to listen, to recognize Our Lord’s voice from within, and to recognize His loving presence in their life.

We then instruct our youth to come follow Jesus, by inviting them to make an act of total consecration, to entrust their heart and commit their life to Jesus of Mercy through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, under her title, Our Lady of Mercy. We then work to help our youth begin living the Catholic Faith as Young Apostles of Divine Mercy. Our youth offer merciful love, forgiveness, healing and hope to those in need through works of mercy– offering the loving presence of Jesus to others.
