On March 6, 1996, at the request of Mother Superior General Paulina Słomka, the Association “Faustinum” Association was established by the Metropolitan Archbishop of Krakow, Franciszek Cardinal Macharski. It brings together priests, consecrated persons and lay faithful from 90 countries, who, together with the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, are participating in the mission of Sister Faustina. The main goal of the Association is the spiritual and apostolic formation of Divine Mercy devotees and proclaiming the message of Mercy recorded in the Diary of St. Faustina to the world, which she provided by her witness of life, deeds, words and prayer. Testimonies of “Faustinum” volunteers and members are published on the occasion of the jubilee on the Association’s website: www.faustinum.pl . The website contains more information on the “Faustinum”, its activities, and the jubilee celebrations.
