The Divine Mercy Brothers of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Kenya is a community of five brothers, five professed priests, and five seminarians. Our charism is liturgy, the liturgy of the hours, and praying the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy for the sick. The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy is a Christian devotion based on the visions of Jesus as reported by Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), known as “the Apostle of Mercy.” She was a Polish sister of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, and canonized as a Catholic saint in 2000.

Note: The chaplet  is a Roman Catholic prayer form in the Roman Catholic Church, often said as a rosary-based prayer  with the same set of rosary beads used for reciting the Holy Rosary or the Chaplet of Holy Wounded. 

The Divine Mercy Brothers of Our Lady of Perpetual Help of Kenya do acts of mercy through praying chaplet and providing a feeding program for twenty-one orphan children. We depend on crop farming to maintain the monastery.
 
Friends of the Divine Mercy movement, we are inviting you to come and partner with us in keeping Jesus on the airways in the spirit of truth and holiness.
