On April 27, the Narduzzi and Greydanus families joined Fr. Joseph J. Gallardo, OAR, prior provincial, and Fr. Fredric Abiera, OAR, to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday at the Provincial Residence in West Orange, New Jersey. The Greydanus family provided the image of Divine Mercy which was placed in the community chapel for the celebration.
The afternoon began with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the praying of the holy rosary at 2:00 PM while Fr. Joseph and Fr. Fredric heard confessions. Then, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy was prayed followed by Benediction, presided by Fr. Fredric. At 3:00 PM, Fr. Joseph celebrated the Eucharist, with the blessing of the image of Divine Mercy after communion. Following the liturgy, all were treated to a reception in the community dining room. Later in the afternoon, the O’Toole family also joined the celebration. This afternoon event was indeed a great grace for the community of the Provincial Residence and for the Narduzzi, Greydanus and O’Toole families.
