Recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy
Sunday morning, about 11:10 a.m., people recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet. This prayer is directed to God our Father, with a focus on God's mercy, represented by an image of Christ, before which the people pray. The chaplet concludes with the singing of the Trisagion, Holy God.

Final Commendation for Dolly Pinnow
At the end of the funeral liturgy in church, instead of the final blessing, there is a final commendation. The priest invites the people to pray in silence. Then, all sing together a hymn of final commendation. Above, you see the singing of this hymn at the funeral of Dolly Pinnow, December 18, 2002. In the back, on the left, is Mayor Angelo Ciambrone. On the right is one of the police officers who served as a pallbearer.

These servers, from the left, are Paige Jaffe, Nick & Paul Rodriguez, Jenna Petrelli, and Ethan Jaffe. Missing is Tony Panici.
