Healing Through Divine Mercy

Guest Speaker: Catherine M. Lanni

Thursday, March 23, 2017, 7—9 p.m.

St. Stephen Catholic Church

Following as amazing life-saving encounter with the Blessed Virgin Mary during childbirth, Catherine M. Lanni, was miraculously healed through Our Lady’s intercession to Our Lord Jesus. In gratitude, she promised to someday “do something good” for Jesus in thanksgiving for her miracle.

Catherine’s promise eventually resulted in an amazing Ministry that she founded, The Servants of Jesus of The Divine Mercy. The Ministry includes The Divine Mercy Center in Clinton Township, MI.

Catherine has dedicated her life to spreading the message of The Divine Mercy, including authoring “A Call to Trust.” She is sure to inspire you with her life story, her compassion for those in need, and her passion for Jesus The Divine Mercy and this Ministry.

Public Welcome!
