The 13th May 2017 - the 100th Anniversary of the First Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. Big thanks to everyone. It was quite a day. We have distributed 6000 Holy Communions which means we could host around 7000 pilgrims. WOW. We had pilgrims from near (from Southern Highlands) but also from very far (Geraldton, WA). May God bless you always.
Thank you Holy Father Francis for giving us the new Saints - Jacinta and Francisco. Please enjoy some of the photos from the celebration.
Fr. D.

Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy, commonly known as Penrose Park (located in the Southern Highlands, NSW) is a renowned place of veneration of the replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Jasna Góra, known as the Black Madonna.  The Shrine is ministered by the Order of St. Paul the First Hermit known as the Pauline Fathers, who are the custodians of the original Icon of the Black Madonna for more than 630 years.
