In 1988 whilst promoting the message of Divine Mercy in Dublin, Val Conlon met a Jesuit a Jesuit Polish priest Fr. Jacub Rostworowski, he was on his way to Zambia to serve the Polish Church as a missionary there. Fr. Jacub and his brother were influenced to become priests after seeing their father who was a professional artist paint an Image of Divine Mercy in his studio in Cracow.
After his ordination Fr. Jacub was appointed Chaplain first at the Hospital in Rabka where Saint Faustina had convalesced during her final bout of illness, and then he became Chaplin at the convent where she died.
Fr. Jacub invited Val to visit all the places associated with Saint Faustina in Cracow before his departure for the missions. Since then they have been friends and when Fr. Jacub started working with poor children and orphans in Zambia HUDT “Divine Mercy in Action” committed to help him with his work there.
It is worth mentioning that any donation for the work we do, goes directly to the project you donate for. We do not take anything out of donations for wages or expenses of any sort. All our workers are volunteers and any expense is paid out of their own pockets as their contribution to Divine Mercy. The profits from our ‘Divine Mercy Publications’ book sales, is the main contributor to all our projects. I think we are the only charity that can honestly and sincerely claim to take nothing from donations.
