DIVINE MERCY 

At three o'clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of
My Passion (St. Faustina Diary, 1320).

                                       Responding to Coronavirus

In order to keep the Catholic community of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore up-to-date regarding our efforts to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Diocese of Wilmington has set up this webpage (cdow.org/coronavirus).

(March 15, 2020 5:30 p.m.) At the advice of government officials, and after consultation with medical professionals, Bishop Francis Malooly has canceled all public Masses in the Diocese of Wilmington until further notice. This effort is designed to help safeguard the public and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“We do not take this action lightly and without prayerful consideration,” Bishop Malooly said. “We must put the health and well-being of our parishioners first. I invite the faithful to stay connected to their parish community electronically, and to participate in Mass via television and the Internet, during this challenging time.”


Additionally, all diocesan and parish Catholic schools and religious education programs, in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, will be closed or canceled for two weeks beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. As of now, schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, March 30, 2020. All CYM Sports events have been cancelled until further notice.
