NZACOM 27-29 Sept NEW ZEALAND

NZ Apostolic Congress on Mercy to be held in Christchurch at Villa Maria College this September 27-29 to promote and understand the mission and message of Divine Mercy in the Church and the world as the vehicle for the New Evangelisation.

Dear all, please read and pray, then pass on to all your contacts, including non-catholics and the unchurched, as you discern. NZACOM 27-29 Sept will be truly an oasis of grace and mercy in these uncertain and dangerous times - come and see that the Lord is good !

Pat Barrett NZACOM National Coordinator.

“God’s mercy can make even the driest land become a garden, can restore life to dry bones (cf. Ez 37:1-14). … Let us be renewed by God’s mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives too ;
