On the Octave of Easter, the Liturgy speaks to us in the Epistle (1 Jn 5) of the blood and water which flowed forth from the Savior's side and which is applied to us after our Baptism in the Sacrament and Confession, instituted in todays Gospel (Jn 20). In honor of God's mercy revealed to us on this day, a plenary indulgence, under the usual conditions, is granted to those who take part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father and the Creed, adding a devout prayer to the Merciful Lord Jesus. If unable to get to church for the above, one may gain the same indulgence by reciting the aforesaid prayers before a devout image of Our Merciful Lord Jesus.
Join us for our monthly Potluck today, April 28th, the Octave of Easter, at Royal Palm Academy, from 3pm-6pm, including an Easter Egg hunt for the children, and the traditional blessing of eggs, from our Roman Ritual, for those who would like to bring them. Eggs, which were traditionally not eaten during Lent, symbolize the risen Christ breaking forth from His tomb.

We welcome and thank seminarian Mr. Christian Hernandez FSSP, present to help us with the solemn Holy Week ceremonies. Please remember him in your prayers as he discerns and prepares for the Holy Priesthood.
Due to the solemn ceremonies of Holy Week which require three sacred ministers there will be no confessions during the Solemn Masses of the Triduum. Please plan on going to confession earlier in the week and to sin no more- ‘Tis the season.
Please note that you can now personally manage your recurring donations- creating, pausing, adjusting or increasing them :) from our website.
