Mission of Divine Mercy
Faith, so that God May Act
 Monastery - Sanctuary - Retreat Center 

Once, when I saw Jesus in the form of a small child, I asked,
“Jesus, why do You now take on the form of a child
when You commune with me? In spite of this,
I still see in You the infinite God, my Lord and Creator.”

Jesus replied that until I learned simplicity
and humility, He would commune with me
as a little child.

"Meditate on the mystery of the Incarnation. "
And suddenly the Infant Jesus appeared before me,
radiant with beauty. He told me how much God is pleased with simplicity in a soul.
"Although My greatness is beyond understanding,
I commune only with those who are little.
I demand of you a childlike spirit."

From Divine Mercy in My Soul: the Diary of St. Faustina
Raul Landa is currently chiefly responsible for the park-like look of the Mission grounds. It is a more-than-full-time job. But recently--on his own time--Raul took it upon himself to create this lovely stone wall around a tree near St. Joseph Chapel, replacing what had been a simple ring of rocks. Raul felt the rocks were unsightly and a little bit of a hazard for the children who play in the area. Raul donated the labor and material.

It looks great, Raul!

In response to requests that we make giving to the Mission easier for people who don't carry cash, we have initiated a new credit card kiosk. It is located at the foot of road to the Chapel.
All donations, large or small are appreciated and put to immediate good use!

The Mission depends entirely on donations in order to carry out our ministry. We do not receive financial support from the Archdiocese.
Please pray to see if God wants you to help support His Mission of Divine Mercy.
