The support you need to bring Divine Mercy to your home, your community, and your parish.
Four unique lay apostolates of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception work together with the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy and the Association of Marian Helpers in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. They promote and teach the authentic forms of the message and devotion to The Divine Mercy. In addition, they encourage people to live out the message of Mercy in their daily lives through a collection of engaging programs, books, publications, and presentations for lay people and the clergy alike.
The Association was created to support the spirituality and worldwide ministries of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, who bring Divine Mercy to where it is most needed. Through its publishing ministry and Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayerline, the Association encourages its members to grow in holiness. The Marian Helpers Center houses Marian Press, which publishes the Diary of St. Faustina and numerous materials to foster devotion to The Divine Mercy and Our Blessed Mother.
Founded in 1996 by renowned experts on Divine Mercy — Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC, and Fr. George Kosicki, CSB — the Institute provides instruction in Divine Mercy theology and spirituality to both parish leaders and clergy. At its inception, Pope John Paul II entrusted the Institute with the task of providing "formation and research in The Divine Mercy message and devotion as it is revealed in Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and in the life and writings of St. Faustina Kowalska."
The Eucharistic Apostles of The Divine Mercy (EADM) is building the body of Christ through its worldwide network of Cenacles. This guided study program for prayer communities includes the study of Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Diary of St. Faustina. Participants gather in local communities to learn more about God, the Holy Catholic Church and their place in the Body of Christ. The apostolate promotes belief in the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharistic Adoration, together with hourly praying of The Divine Mercy Chaplet for the sick and dying.
