DIVINE MERCY -
the Message for Today
St. John the Evangelist Parish in Lambertville, NJ invites you to join us March 23-25 2019 for our Lenten Mission focused on the Divine Mercy. Joining us are Sr. Donata and Sr. Veritas from the congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, Washington DC.
Reflections during Mass on Saturday and Sunday will focus on the "Divine Mercy – the message for today." Mass times are Saturday, March 23 5:00pm and Sunday March 24 8:00am, 9:30 am and 11:00am.
On Sunday March 24, there will be an Adoration beginning 3pm followed by the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
On Monday, March 25, at 6:30pm Sr. Donata will discuss the "Sacrament of Reconciliation – the way to peace of heart." Confessions will immediately follow. There will be additional Priests available to hear confessions.
The Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy was founded in 1862 by mother Teresa Potocka in Poland. The charism of the Congregation was first directed to girls and women in need of moral renewal.
In 1925, Helen Kowalska, who would later be known as St. Faustina, joined this religious family. It was to her that Our Lord revealed the message of Divine Mercy, and entrusted her with the mission of reminding and proclaiming this truth to the whole world.
Now the Sisters carry out this task through their prayer, word and deed of mercy.
Sr. M. Donata Farbaniec – born in Poland. Joined the Congregation in 1995. She is a perpetually professed sister. She used to work for a few years as a member of a formation team, accompanying the candidates on the first stage of their religious life. In 2010-2013 she was assigned to the community in Boston, Massachusetts. Afterwards she worked in one of the retreat houses of the Congregation and in 2016 she began a ministry of propagation of the message of Divine Mercy in John Paul II National Shrine in Washington DC.
Sr. Veritas, a young American Sister, just made her first Religious Vows and will accompany Sr. Donata.

Important Announcement about Fraudulent Emails and Internet Spam
Dear Parishioners of St. John the Evangelist,
We are posting this notice to make you aware of a serious matter that has been brought to our attention. We are aware that there have been several recent attempts to impersonate St. John the Evangelist and the Diocese of Metuchen over email. These communications often promise funding and investments to encourage people to respond with their personal information and purchasing of gift cards.
This practice is known as Phishing. Phishing is the act of sending an e-mail to a user while falsely claiming to be an established, legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft.
St. John the Evangelist and the Diocese of Metuchen would like our members to know that we would NEVER ask for personal information, such as social security, account numbers or to purchase gift cards in an e-mail message. If you ever receive an e-mail allegedly from St. John the Evangelist or any priest, deacon or staff member asking for this type of information, you should NOT RESPOND to it and report it to the links below immediately. Do not open any attachments or click on any links within the email as they may be compromised.
For additional information about online security and fraudulent report emails, please visit these sites:
Thank you for your time.

God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s Kingdom as sisters, brothers, religious priests, consecrated virgins, and hermits, as well as members of Secular Institutes.
