The Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy was founded in 1862 by mother Teresa Potocka in Poland. The charism of the Congregation was first directed to girls and women in need of moral renewal.
In 1925, Helen Kowalska, who would later be known as St. Faustina, joined this religious family. It was to her that Our Lord revealed the message of Divine Mercy, and entrusted her with the mission of reminding and proclaiming this truth to the whole world.
Now the Sisters carry out this task through their prayer, word and deed of mercy.
Sr. M. Donata Farbaniec – born in Poland. Joined the Congregation in 1995. She is a perpetually professed sister. She used to work for a few years as a member of a formation team, accompanying the candidates on the first stage of their religious life. In 2010-2013 she was assigned to the community in Boston, Massachusetts. Afterwards she worked in one of the retreat houses of the Congregation and in 2016 she began a ministry of propagation of the message of Divine Mercy in John Paul II National Shrine in Washington DC.
Sr. Veritas, a young American Sister, just made her first Religious Vows and will accompany Sr. Donata.
