The New Jersey Center of Divine Mercy -
The Center is also home to a First-Class Relic of Saint Faustina. In 2008, an authorized request was sent to Mother Superior of The Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, Krakow, Poland for a first class relic of Saint Faustina. The authorization stated that “the relic would be reverenced by literally thousands of people”. God’s grace continued to bless this effort when Fr. Seraphim, Michalenko, MIC, and vice-postulator for Saint Faustina’s cause agreed to receive the Relic for us when visiting Poland. He presented it to Father Josephat Kalema, OCSO, Pastor at The Center and Paul Miller, Founder of The Healing Ministry of the Divine Mercy, during a reception at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy. The Relic was received into our Center at a solemn reception on the Feast of All Saints Day, 2008. The Relic is displayed for veneration during all of our celebrations.
