The Mission of the Divine Mercy Centre and Apostolate

Objects and Purpose:

a) To preach, promote and advance the spiritual teaching of the Roman Catholic Church
  • by going out (by invitation) in communities, prayer groups, Church organizations, etc. to speak about the good news of God's salvation
  • by propagating the message of the saving power of God and His Divine Mercy for all of mankind
  • by stressing in speaking engagements the importance of a truthful and righteous behaviour
  • by speaking in Church congregations about the love of God for mankind and the salvation which derives from it
  • by handing out leaflets, prayer cards, etc. to inform the people of God about different aspects of the Roman catholic faith
  • by printing reading materials such as leaflets, prayer cards and a quarterly newsletter to advance the spiritual teachings of the Roman Catholic Church
  • by preparing and producing audio and video materials for the purpose of teaching and advancing the Roman Catholic faith in particular and the love and mercy of God in general

b) To support missions and missionaries in order to propagate the Roman Catholic faith
  • by sending free materials to missions and missionaries in our own country and abroad
  • by supporting missions and missionaries through financial aid for the purpose of teaching, providing health care, etc., in accordance with the Church's teachings of "sharing with the less fortunate"
  • by sending teachers and preachers to the missions to further advance the works of mercy

c) To incorporate the Roman Catholic Church's works of mercy in our work
  • to feed the hungry - through donations, food drives, dinners for the underprivileged on special occasions (Thanksgiving, Christmas)
  • to provide clothing - through the collection of used articles of clothing which are supplied free of charge to people in need
  • to visit and comfort - through trained volunteers who will be apostles of Divine Mercy so that comfort by means of gifts of love and prayer can be brought into nursing homes and hospitals, to shut-ins and the imprisoned
  • to instruct - through printing of informative materials to distribute upon request through instruction sessions and meetings to inform the uninformed throughout our country; through teaching sessions at the Divine Mercy Centre based on the Catholic Catechism, the Bible, the Holy Father's writing and writings of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska (also kinown as the Secretary of Divine Mercy)
  • to comfort and counsel - through a Canada-wide toll-free counseling and prayer line as well as personal counseling at the Centre
  • to operate a retreat facility - by providing a place of refuge, reflection and/or spiritual growth. At the Divine Mercy guest house, retreatants will have access to a well-stocked library of religious books, audio and video tapes for their spiritual benefit. hey will also have access to a prayer room for a quiet time of reflection and group prayer or teaching sessions. If desired, retreatants may participate in the daily tasks of the Apostolate house, or they may simply enjoy the beauty of the nature on the property. These will give the retreatants strength to continue the works of mercy in the public sector. The community as a whole benefits when all its active members are "at their best" both physically and spiritually.
