Center

for The Divine Mercy

Since 1943 when the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary purchased the 350 acres on Eden Hill it has been the center from which devotion to The Divine Mercy has been promulgated. God must have looked on Eden Hill with special love.
The Shrine of The Divine Mercy is a ministry of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In 1960 the Shrine of The Divine Mercy was dedicated and in 1996, the Shrine, built in honor of The Divine Mercy and Mary Immaculate, was honored with the title of National Shrine of The Divine Mercy.
This Shrine offers many opportunities for inspiration and devotion. The site is also the geographic and spiritual home of the Association of Marian Helpers and is open to visitors on weekdays.
The Shrine is the site for the largest celebration in the Northeast of the Feast of The Divine Mercy, which is held each year on the Sunday after Easter.
Thousands of pilgrims visit the National Shrine each year either on personal retreat or to join in the celebration of holy, ethnic or specialized days and is open to the public, daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition, the Divine Mercy Bookstore and Gift Shop offers an extensive selection of Catholic products to encourage you on your walk of faith.
