Divine Mercy

April 2021 Man Up-date

God Squad’s own Deacon Stephen Robinson talks to us about Divine Mercy; what it is and in so doing, gives us a glance into the infinite depth of God’s Love.

 

Now is the time of Mercy.  Now it is needed more than ever.

 

Deacon offers us the antidote this world so desperately needs.

St. Joseph Litany Project Update

In other news we had a very successful fundraiser in January, A Dram For St Joseph!

We are 2/3 of the way to our goal of $35,000.00 for our St Joseph Litany Project.

A big thanks

to all of you who attended and to our sponsors for such a fun evening. We raised over $6,500.00 in the silent auction and thanks to many of you, we were able to sponsor 52 Bishops, priests and deacons.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

Mt 25:40

 We will see what God inspires us to do this summer when we can hopefully come together in person.

Invitation to Divine Mercy

We are entering Holy Week and preparing for the Easter Triduum, looking forward to celebrating the joy of the resurrection!


One of the traditional devotions that we do and encourage others to do is the Divine Mercy Novena. It starts on Good Friday and finishes on Divine Mercy Sunday (The Second Sunday of Easter, the first Sunday after Easter).


God Squad Canada has made it so that you can join us in this novena by going to https://godsquad.ca/divine-mercy-novena and find the daily meditation there for you to read or listen to, as well as the chaplet of Divine Mercy


In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her:

“On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy … On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.”

“Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this Chaplet. Write down these words, my daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognise my unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of my mercy; let them profit from the blood and water which gushed forth for them.”    (Diary, 848)

Mille grazie Spolumbo’s

Mille grazie Spolumbo’s

Spolumbo’s Fine Foods & Deli has been a landmark business in Calgary since 1992 when some football friends came together to create a 10 seat deli in Inglewood using tried and true traditional recipes passed down from their families.

Today, Spolumbos is an icon recognized by anyone who lives in or has visited Calgary because it is a dining experience everyone should partake of.  Within the first few years of God Squad being founded, Spolumbos generously donated the food for the conferences for upwards of 500 men, which is no small feat! Since then, Spolumbos has sponsored the conference every year with their generous donations since 2003. 

God Squad would like to recognize and thank them for their selfless service to the organization and the men who have benefited.

We thank them for their undying support and encourage people to participate in our efforts in supporting them at every occasion possible.
