St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Newburgh will celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday (April 16) with an hour of Confession, starting at 2 PM.

There will then be a blessing of the Divine Mercy image at 3 PM, followed by singing the Divine Mercy Chaplet. All are welcome!

Chrism Mass

The Chrism Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, April 4, 5:30 PM CDT, at Saint Benedict Cathedral. At this  Mass, the holy oils used throughout the year are blessed and consecrated, and the priests of the diocese make a public renewal of their priestly promises to serve Christ and the Church.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be available prior to the Mass. All are invited to attend, show your support for the service of our priests, and pray together as a diocese in those holy days leading up to Easter.
