San Francisco — The Divine Mercy Eucharistic Society (DMES) in California is trying to establish a Divine Mercy Shrine on 100 acres near the San Francisco Bay Area to be a place of mercy, refuge, renewal and healing.
The property, called “Mercy Hills,” is within 15 to 45 minutes of many metropolitan and suburban communities including the major cities of San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco.
Planners hope to build at the site a Divine Mercy Shrine with a large cruciform, domed church with Perpetual Adoration; a home for priests and religious; and a Divine Mercy Retreat and Conference Center.
In the plans, priests and religious will give ongoing teachings about the Divine Mercy devotion, celebrate Mass, and hear confessions while youth and adults can gather for renewal and healing at the retreat center.
How cool is this? What a wonderful idea!
The shrine would be the “sister shrine” of the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Article.
