The Devotion to Divine Mercy at St Peter’s Church was inspired by the Daily 3pm Divine Mercy Devotion (DMD) at Saints Peter and Paul Church, Queen Street, Singapore. During the 40 days retreat in Singapore, Ir and Mrs Michael Hii were much comforted by the Merciful Lord and with the blessing of Rector Rev Fr. Vincent Chin, St Peter’s Church started the daily 3pm DMD at St Peter’s Church on Friday 18 June 2010.
St Peter’s Divine Mercy Apostolate (DMA) was formed with Ir Michael Hii appointed as Chairman, it was launched on the Feast Day of Saint Faustina on 5 October 2010.
With a group of dedicated leaders, DMD community prayers are said in the Church at 3 o’clock everyday of the year. On special occasions that’s on Good Friday, the DMD is said at 1 pm, and on St Faustina’s Feast Day 5 Oct., DMD is said at 8 pm after the Feast Day Mass. DMA organizes visits to the poor twice a year.
Major Celebrations fall on Divine Mercy Sunday (Sunday after Easter Sunday) and St Faustina Feast day (5 Oct). Novena to the DM is said twice a year in the Church – one starts on Good Friday and another one before the St Faustina Feast day.
