Feast of Christ the King

and the 19th Anniversary of 
the Mission of Divine Mercy










Dear Friends of the Mission,   

This weekend marks the 19th anniversary of the Mission of Divine Mercy. As we approach our anniversary, we make a direct appeal for your support to help maintain the daily functioning of the Mission and our Community houses. We only do this once a year. 

For you and for us, this past year has been like no other: we have all faced the problems caused by Covid, by civil unrest, and by issues in our Church and society.  

For all of us, it is like being in the midst of a tempest, with all of our familiar landmarks obscured or destroyed by the storm. It can cause fear and disorientation.  However, we know two things: God is the Ultimate Victor and Lord of All; and He has created each of us to live in these times. 

But when the Son of Man comes, will He find Faith? (Lk 18:8)

These words tell us what God wants from each of us. He asks us to have faith in Him; to trust in Him. 

Our Community has always believed that God created MDM to serve Him for a special purpose and  for precisely these times. One way we understand our purpose is that we are to be Beacons, Shields and Anchors for those most in danger of being lost in this storm.

BEACONS that cut through the darkness with the light of His Truth and Love to reach souls that are steeped in the profound darkness that blankets our world. 

SHIELDS, that with His grace withstand the attacks of the enemy and offer protection to His most vulnerable children.

ANCHORS of Faith, that prevent His children from being lost in the tempest that is upon us. We must anchor ourselves in His Heart. Our faith must deepen, like an anchor that is lowered deeper and deeper into the firm Rock.  We are not lost or disoriented because Jesus is our Rock.  Firm. Unshakable.  Trustworthy.

And because we are anchored in Him, though we may be afraid, we do not give in to our fear. 


God created you, too, for these times. He made you for these times. We know that Jesus has already demonstrated that He has absolute power over the storm. But look around you.  Is He asking you to do what no one else can do?  To be His co-worker  in the storm? To be Shield, Beacon and Anchor in your family, among your friends, at work?


God bless you for your past support which has sustained this little Mission of His Mercy to this point. We believe that all the work and ministry of our nineteen years have been preparing us for these times.  Your gift will give us the encouragement of friendly support as we respond to God’s call to continue to minister within the storm.  Thank  you, dear friends, for that support. 

In His Mercy,

Fr. John Mary

Guardian of the Mission of Divine Mercy

His Justice is Coming

Walking with Jesus and Mary
Making A Personal Pilgrimage
at the Mission


We want to make our lovely, peaceful, consecrated  Mission property more available to people, particularly during this period when many have been isolated in their homes for such a long time. So we are inviting you to come out on your own, or with family members, or friends and visit the various prayer sites at the Mission.  
We think of it as making a personal prilgrimage. 

To help people enter into  prayer more easily, we have prepared a little booklet with a photograph, prayers, information and Scripture for each site, as well as a map that helps to locate the site. (There is also a Spanish edition.) You are then free to choose which sites you want to visit and  how long you wish to spend there.  
You can arrange your own pilgrimage, as the Spirit moves you

Currently the hours for pilgrimage are Tuesday-Friday from 9 AM - 4:30 PM.



Thank you for considering a donation in support of the Mission of Divine Mercy.  The Mission has no regular source of income, and we receive no diocesan funding.  Every bit of support comes from people like you; people whom God introduces to the Mission.  We try to steward your money wisely and make each dollar work hard for Him and for His people.
