The National Shrine and Parish of the Divine Mercy (Filipino: Pambansang Dambana at Parokya ng Banal na Awa) is a church dedicated to the Divine Mercy in Marilao, Bulacan, the Philippines. It was elevated to the status of National Shrine by Archbishop Orlando Quevedo of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. The first Mass was held at the site on February 2, 1992, the Feast of the Presentation.
At the back of the church is a model of Calvary with life-sized statues of the Stations of the Cross. The Guadalupe Chapel at the church basement where the picture of Our Lady is enthroned with its flowing water that many pilgrims consider healing. The Rosary Hill, Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes where people can pray for good health, the Grotto of the Resurrection for long as they hear the water gush from the falls, the Saint Faustina Hall, an auditorium where Sunday Masses are held due to the large population of devotees in the shrine. The Shrine offers the Little Poland Museum that feature depictions of the house and basement where Pope John Paul II lived, the chapel where Faustina Kowalska had a vision of the Divine Mercy and the prison cell of Maximillian Kolbe where he was martyred.
