About the Speaker
After serving with the United States Marine Corps, local Detroiter John G. Kruse has been promoting the Divine Mercy Message and De-votion since his own conversion through Di-vine Mercy in the late 1980’s. John traveled extensively around the United States, Poland and much of Eu-rope while working with The Marian Helpers at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA. He led pilgrimages to Rome for Sister Faustina’s Beatification in 1993 and her Canonization in 2000 and coordinated the making of Time for Mercy, an award winning doc-umentary about Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II and current events. John has given presentations on St. Faustina and The Divine Mercy Message and Devotion across the United States including churches, prisons and schools. Through his work with the Marians in Stockbridge, MA, John obtained a Special Apostolic Blessing from Pope John Paul II for Detroit Catholic Radio to “Proclaim God’s Mercy.” He worked with De-troit Catholic Radio as executive director and radio host for over seven years. John now works in marketing and lives near Detroit with his wife Marie and their nine children.
Novena Leading up to Divine Mercy Sunday:
We will continue to pray the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy immediately after each weekday Mass (Mass at 12:15 to approx. 12:45 pm) through Divine Mercy Sunday, April 23rd. Novena pamphlets are in the back of the church or can be found on the Internet.
Faithfully served by the Holy Spirit Fathers since 1893
