New Apostles of Mercy group

Apostles of Mercy – Sacred Heart parish is forming “Apostles of Mercy”.  This group is dedicated to praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet or Rosary, specifically, for those who are near death, or who may have just passed away (Catholic or Non-Catholic, parishioner or no-parishioner).

When the leader of the Apostles of Mercy receives information of a dying or deceased person, all of the Apostles of Mercy will be sent a text stating that “prayers are needed” and “When you are able please pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy or Rosary.”  Anyone can notify this Apostolate by contacing it’s directors about a person who is near death. No sensitive information will be relayed about the person/soul, just that prayer is being requested.  No confirming text reply from you will be required.  Be informed that this request could come at any time of the day or night and during any day of the week.

Any person young or old can become a part of the Apostolate.  Families too!  This is a wonderful opportunity to enter into the work of saving souls for our Lord.  Our Lord stated to St. Faustina, “The souls that say this Chaplet will be embraced by my mercy during their lifetime and especially at the hour of death.”

If you wish to join this Apostolate and become an Apostle of Mercy please contact the Apostolate leaders Jim and Debbie Dirkes at 616 450-8653. Or email them at
