Associate Members

Our merciful Lord is looking for lay associates who are willing to help in His Vineyard of Divine Mercy, for the harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few! If you feel you are being called to help, please answer His call.

  • A daily prayer schedule (at least 15 min. in the morning and 15 min. in the evening or night hours)
  • Pray at least one Chaplet of Divine Mercy each day
  • Pray the Great Novena of Divine Mercy each day (day 1 of the Novena on the 1st of each month, day 2 on the 2nd … day 9 on the 9th, day 1 on the 10th … day 1 on the 19th … day 1 on the 28th … )
  • Spiritually unite yourself with Jesus on the Cross whenever possible, but at least for a moment on Fridays
  • Unite your prayers with those at the Centre; be part of salvation history through intercessory prayers and selfless giving
  • Become an apostle of Divine Mercy (refer to the Apostleship information)

Spiritual Acts of Mercy:

  • Offer mortifications and fasts for the continued spreading of the Divine Mercy message in our country.
  • Unite pains and sorrows with the Sacred Passion of Our Lord, giving glory to God for a share in redemptive suffering
  • Keep the needs of those who seek help from the Divine Mercy Centre in your daily prayers
  • Forward your own prayer needs regularly by telephone, fax, or e-mail to the Centre so that you can be remembered in our daily prayers of intercession

Benefits:

Apostle of Mercy Prayer

(from "Will You Help Me?", page 125)

Merciful Jesus, we believe in You and we trust in You. Come to the aid of our weakness and our incapacity. Grant that we may be able to make You known and loved by all and, confident in the immensity of Your love, we may be able to combat the evil which is in us and in all the world, for Your glory and our salvation. Amen.

For the next date of installation of Associate Members, please write, call or e-mail us.
