Road Sign Promotes Divine Mercy

The Knights of Columbus, Council 2411 have been partnering with the students at Pope John High School in Elgin to create a roadsign promoting the Divine Mercy. With the assistance of Mark Dwyer and their instructor Mrs. Connie Henn, the art class (below) painted and prroduced a roadside sign of the Divine Mercy.  Jesus Christ appeared to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska.  He revealed to her the significance of the Divine Mercy to inform others of the promised graces that flow forth from the mericiful Heart of Jesus upon us and on the whole world through this holy image. The sign was completed and installed this past weekend south of Elgin on Highway 14.  Father Dan Andrews of St. Boniface parish-Elgin and St. Bonaventure parish-Raeville, blessed the sign on Divine Mercy Sunday (above). Approximately 50 parishioners attended the ceremony.  The sign is dedicated to the memory of Paul Eischeid – Pope John graduate from the class of 1972.  His family have always been strong believers in the devotion of the Divine Mercy.
