Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy
The Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy meet on the 3rd Monday of each month (except during November and December) in the Parish Hall Conference Room at 6:30 pm.
You are welcomed to join us at these meetings! For more information, please call (530) 673-1573 and ask to speak with Cathy Marsh about the Divine Mercy Ministry.
The Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy (EADM), under the patronage of "The Entirely Perfect Virgin Holy Mary" of Guadalupe, is a Roman Catholic, nonprofit lay outreach ministry of the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception, St. Stanislaus Kostka Province, headquartered in Stockbridge, MA.
On October 15, 1998, Pope John Paul II imparted a special Apostolic Blessing to all members of The Eucharistic Apostles of the Divine Mercy, and to all the faithful, who offer their prayers and invest their time, talent and treasure in support of the exercise of this ministry.
1) Profess and proclaim the truth of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist, and to promote, insofar as possible, Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and the hourly offering of the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the dying.
2) Bring to a hurting world the Divine Mercy message and devotion according to the revelations granted to the Church through Blessed Faustina Kowalska.
3) Form small faith groups, called cenacles, to meet weekly:
a) to pray for and encourage vocations to the priesthood and the religious life;
b) to pray and work for an end o the scourge of abortion in the world;
c) to experience the fullness of our Catholic Faith through the study of Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska
4) Encourage members in the exercise of the Faith through spiritual and corporal works of mercy, and to help people to become sensitive to the gift and beauty of all life, especially through care for the "lepers" of today--the rejected, the lonely, the disabled, the elderly and the dying.
EADM meet in small groups (in imitation of the meetings of the first Christians in the cenacle) to have fellowship, deepen their Catholic faith and the knowledge of the Divine Mercy message; share their struggles and joys in applying it to life in the family and workplace; and to live out this faith together by performing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. More than being just prayer groups, bible studies or service organizations, cenacles are a healthy combination of all of these. They are a way for us to deepen our understanding and experience of The Divine Mercy, which our Lord invites us to exercise toward all others.
