Archbishop Leonard P. Blair said during Divine Mercy devotions on April 8 at Divine Mercy Parish that mercy and love go hand in hand. The devotions for Divine Mercy Sunday followed a procession from St. Stephen Church on State Street to St. Rita Church on Whitney Avenue. The celebration included confessions at both churches. After hearing confessions at St. Stephen Church, Archbishop Blair blessed a Divine Mercy image that was carried in at the front of the procession of 150 faithful. They sang along the 1.3-mile walk to St. Rita Church, where they were joined by others who had already assembled.
