DIVINE MERCY PARISH
23 West Chestnut Avenue, Vineland, NJ 08360
The mission of the new Divine Mercy parish is to promote a vibrant and dynamic community which is truly Catholic, living and worshipping in faith, love and hope. The parish is committed to spread the Gospel to all who enter through our doors and to evangelize to those in our community who do not know the Lord; those who have felt disenfranchised or dissatisfied with the church. We extend our open arms to welcome everyone without regard to color, creed or culture. We offer many opportunities to those who wish to serve. Together we celebrate the healing and sanctifying love of God through the Holy Trinity, the reception of the sacraments, and especially the Holy Eucharist.
Our priests are happy to meet with parishioners. However, we ask that you call the Rectory office to request an appointment. Due to their busy schedules, please note that sacramental questions are handled by our office personnel. Persons interested in receiving sacraments are asked to come to the Rectory Office. We are open from Monday through Friday 9AM – 12 noon and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Office closes for lunch at 12 noon.
Persons interested in participating in the Cursillo Movement Groups must attend a three-day intensive retreat. We have three groups that meet each week. A men’s group and a women’s group meet separately in the Convent, in English on Mondays and Tuesdays respectively. Shirley Velazquez heads the women’s group and Mike Velazquez heads the Men’s group. A Spanish group also meets on Tuesdays after the 7 pm Mass in the Chapel. That group is led by Deacon Roberto Rodriguez.

Stewardship Relections: Grateful Stewards “Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good that we are here.’” (Matthew 17:4a) In the Gospel we see Jesus take Peter, James and John to a mountain top and reveal to them His divine glory. Peter responded enthusiastically, “Lord, it is good that we are here.” Do we feel the same way each week when we come to Mass? Are we in awe of the wonder of our God? >>>
