The ministry of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in the home parish of Sister Faustina began on August 25, 2001, the 96th anniversary of her birth. The nuns were invited to Świnice Warckie by the Ordinary of the Diocese of Włocławek, Bp. Bronisław Dembowski, to share the message of Mercy in the place of birth and baptism of the Apostle of Divine Mercy. The Sisters initially stayed in the parish house and began teaching and providing religious service at the Church of St. Casimir. They also took care of St. Faustina’s home in Głogowiec, which belongs to the parish and showing visitors around. A year later (in 2002), Bp. Dembowski consecrated the parish church as a Baptismal Shrine of St. Faustina, and entrusted it to the care of the parish priest and Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy. On 8 December 2005, the Sisters moved to the new building. One wing of this edifice is a contemplative convent. On 25 August 2008, in the home parish of St. Faustina, a contemplative branch of the Congregation was established, with the purpose of implementing the charism through prayer and sacrifice. Ever since, two convents have coexisted in the building: an active one and a contemplative one, and the message of God’s Mercy is preached by the testimony of the Sisters’ lives, their apostolic work, prayer and sacrifice.
