Quickly access reliable information on Divine Mercy and more from the Marians.

by Patrick Novecosky, Website Coordinator

Have you ever been frustrated trying to locate information on the World Wide Web? You visit several sites to get all the information you want. And even then, you wonder if it's all credible.

Well, if you're hunting for reliable information about Divine Mercy,
St. Maria Faustina, or the
Congregation of Marians, your one-stop destination is simple --

Launched in 1995, the website has undergone numerous face-lifts --
the most recent just this spring with a new look to our Site Contents page, making your visit much more pleasurable. The redesign gives you
a clear picture of how to find information, be it how to pray the Divine Mercy Novena, back issues of this magazine, or stories about the Marians past and present. We profile our Marians of today and the Outstanding Marians whose causes for canonization have begun.

In order to serve you better, we recently launched a new online catalogue with most of the same products you can find in our print catalogue. Now you can have quick and easy access to these items day or night. We have everything from enrollment cards, prayercards, leaflets, books, rosaries, and videos to our line of exclusive statuary.

We've added several other features for our Marian Helpers. We have a very popular National Shrine of The Divine Mercy Chaplet screensaver. It includes pictures of the Shrine, St. Faustina, and the words of the Chaplet. If you have a devotion to The Divine Mercy or St. Faustina, you can click on St. Faustina's "Revelation of the Day" and meditate on the daily reading from her "Diary."

If you or a loved one is in need of prayers, you can visit our online prayer room and remember a special intention or lift up a prayer of thanksgiving. This is our online complement to our Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayer Ministry here on Eden Hill. You can also send your loved ones an e-card with thoughtful wishes and prayers, whether it be a birthday greeting or simply a "thinking of you" message.

After pausing for prayer, learn about the National Shrine and take a virtual tour of its beautiful interior before you come on pilgrimage. If you are committed to Divine Mercy, you'll also want to learn more about our lay outreach apostolate. The Eucharistic Apostles of The Divine Mercy have started prayer cenacles in parishes around the world.

To make your visit to our website more convenient, we've added a search engine on every single page. So, if you can't find what you're looking for quickly, just type your query into the search box and hit "Return" or "Enter."

If you speak Spanish, or know someone who does, you may want to explore our Website en espanol at This site presents the basics of the Association, Divine Mercy, the National Shrine, and the Marians.

Designed with you in mind, both sites inspire and inform you about mercy, St. Faustina, and the Marians. Once you've had a chance to explore, make sure you share our site with those you love.
