At Penrose Park in the Southern Highlands of NSW, there is a shrine dedicated to our Lady of Mercy, represented by a replica of the Icon of Our Lady of Jasna Góra, known as the Black Madonna.  The Shrine is run by the Order of St. Paul the First Hermit known as the Pauline Fathers.  The Pauline Fathers have been custodians of the original Icon of the Black Madonna since 1382.
