Advent is a season of preparation. And if we want to experience the true magic and meaning of Christmas, we need to take a break from our to-do lists and get our hearts ready for Christmas.

St. Hedwig Parish...

 

Welcomes You

St. Jadwiga Parish welcomes you. 

 


DIVINE MERCY 

At three o'clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of
My Passion (St. Faustina Diary, 1320).


Jesus, I trust in you!          Jezu, ufam Tobie!       Jesús, en Ti confío!
