Mission of Divine Mercy
 Monastery - Sanctuary - Retreat Center 

Mass this Sunday will be in Spanish.
Please pray for the women
who are making the Encounter.

They Need Our Prayers!

Our holy priests and religious (and perhaps especially those who aren't so holy but want to be better) need our prayers as never before. They are prime targets for Satan's attacks because they can be his greatest adversaries. Let us offer our prayers, Masses, our sufferings and our time in Adoration for them--- asking that the Lord endow them with His strength, power and light.

From the Second Day of the Divine Mercy Novena:

"Today bring to Me the souls of priests and religious,
and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy.
It was they who gave Me the strength to endure My bitter Passion.
Through them, as through channels,
My mercy flows out upon mankind."

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze
upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard –
upon the souls of priests and religious;
and endow them with the strength of Your blessing.
For the love of the Heart of your Son in which they are enfolded,
impart to them Your power and light,
that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation,

Letters from Friends of the Mission
An Email from a Recent Retreatant

....I would like to give back as I received so much during my Encounter – it truly was an amazing experience. I’ve been on many retreats as a retreatant, team, and even a Director – but never have I had an experience like this – ever.

Father was absolutely correct when he said during retreats we feel that “explosion of fireworks”, I’ve always heard it referred to as “the Holy Spirit High”, but he was right – the fireworks fade. So his first talk when he said “you will not feel fireworks here, but I guarantee you that a seed will be planted” – yep. I loved every single second of my time with all the wonderful people who work so hard to offer this experience to us!! I didn’t want to leave!!! LOL!

My home life, caring for my mother and my father and working full time and just the day to day – doing everything for everyone because my mother and father can no longer do as they did (although my mother is coming along, slowly but surely after the stroke), .... – has taken a very big toll on me; mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually. Ordinarily I can barely peel myself out of bed just from exhaustion – and I wake up every morning with my body achy and in pain, I haven’t felt joy in quite some time. When I was on my Encounter, I had no aches or pain – I jumped outa bed at 3:40 AM ready to start my day with Jesus. I was never tired or exhausted, my mind didn’t race with the million tasks that I need to do daily – I was just at peace, I have not had peace or calming or rest or relaxation or just quiet in so long.

Father said we may leave feeling nothing, but I felt everything.

Jesus was with me, My Blessed Mother was with me – Jesus carried me through my own personal journey that weekend and I will never forget. Thank you God for inviting us to join you on this very special weekend!

Thank you!!!!

Heading Here

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.

.....Or Do It Right Now Here!

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.
