OUR mission

The words of Jesus to St. Faustina instruct us to spread the devotion of Divine Mercy to the whole world. It is the mission of the Divine Mercy Retreat Center & Family Camp to respond to Christ’s call and exist as a meeting place and deep well of renewal and unity in God’s merciful, healing love. Through the beauty of nature, art and worship, the Divine Mercy Retreat Center & Family Camp seek to provide a life-giving experience to youth, individuals, married couples and families as they encounter the Fount of Life, Himself. The retreat center and family camp are consecrated to the Divine Mercy and the Blessed Mother.

I have opened My Heart as a living fountain of mercy. Let all souls draw life from it.
— words of Jesus, Diary 1520
