This is the Place
“Jesus turned to me and motioned with His hand for me to follow Him. We walked together to a beautiful place. There was a lot of green grass, trees and a wide path surrounding the area. At the edge of this property was a small white house. Jesus said, “This place will be a refuge for My beloved people.”

The Servants of Jesus of The Divine Mercy
Established in 2003 by the Archdiocese of Detroit, The Servants of Jesus of The Divine Mercy invite people to come and experience the mercy of God with love and compassion through their peaceful place of refuge, the Divine Mercy Center. Many graces have been given, most notably the designation of the Center as an Archdiocesan Shrine of Jesus The Divine Mercy.
It’s a place where people come for encouragement, to take a breath, to hear the truth and to experience the living Jesus. The Shrine is a beacon of hope on the pilgrimage of life.
People from all over Michigan and beyond, from all walks of life, come to visit the Shrine of Jesus The Divine Mercy to experience our mission of Divine Mercy. Inspired by the many testimonials of graces, blessings and healings people have received through the Mercy of God; they are encouraged to return to their local parish communities to share this great Mercy. Together we rejoice in His love!
Remembering always the words of Jesus:
“One by one and every one counts!” (A Call to Trust, May 1996)
We are a place of peace and love for the community of mankind. A beacon of hope for those in need. A light along the path of life. And a reflection of God’s words that all souls matter.
To encourage people to experience the mercy of God, to minister with love and compassion and to open the door to healing through which all may pass.
Our Foundress – Catherine M. Lanni
Catherine M. Lanni is a gifted speaker and the founder of Shrine of Jesus The Divine Mercy, and the Divine Mercy Center in Clinton Township, Michigan.
In 1986, Catherine was miraculously healed through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary while on her deathbed, after giving birth to her youngest daughter. She made a promise that she would do something “good” for God (in return). In 1992, Jesus Christ appeared to Catherine and asked for “a total healing of every strata of the Church.”
Catherine recounts the entire story in her book, “A Call to Trust.”
