WACOM IV  4th World Apostolic Congress on Mercy  Philippines January 16-20, 2017

'What I Saw'

Recently, the Church celebrated the third World Apostolic Congress on Mercy (WACOM) in Bogota, Colombia. A congress is a Vatican-approved initiative in the life of the Church that focuses on a particular aspect of the faith. The Mercy Congress aims to bring greater awareness of — and participation in — the mercy of God as a source of hope, healing, and renewal for all people, all creeds, all families, all communities, and all nations.

Around 1,200 people from over 40 countries attended WACOM from Aug. 15-19, sharing teaching on Divine Mercy, testimonies about the power of God's mercy in their lives, and fellowship amongst missionary disciples of Divine Mercy, all coming together to coordinate their efforts across the globe.

Missed WACOM? Here, some of the founding members of the Marian Fathers' Divine Mercy Apostolates share what they saw, heard, and experienced this year in Bogota.

Thank you all for what you've done to promote the message of mercy.
Our 11 English EADM cenacles and 9
Spanish EADM cenacles have also
enjoyed Fr. Gaitley's consecration
to MERCIFUL LOVE and consecration to
OUR LADY (33 Days to Morning Glory)
Because of your efforts, we have been celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday and
have Jesus I trust in You image outside
at our Marian shrine and in our Day Chapel, office conference room, etc.
at St. Margaret Mary in Cedar Park, TX

We are inviting Austin diocese cenacles to convene together on a pilgrimage to
HOLY DOOR at Corn Hill, Holy Trinity Church in November to finish our Year of Mercy

Marie, I have volunteered for a number of years in Medical Hospitality. I do not know how to become a member of Healthcare Professionals for Divine Mercy. How do In go about this?
