The National Shrine and Parish of the Divine Mercy (Filipino: Pambansang Dambana at Parokya ng Banal na Awa)[1] is a Roman Catholic 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.[2]


The Guadalupe Chapel in the church’s basement has a replica of the tilmahtli bearing Our Lady of Guadalupe, near which is flowing water many pilgrims collect as they consider it miraculous.

Behind the church is a Calvary with life-sized statues of the Stations of the Cross. Nearby are the Rosary Hill; the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes where people can pray for good health; and the Grotto of the Resurrection.

The Saint Faustina Hall is an auditorium where Masses are also held to accommodate any overflow of pilgrims in the main church.

The Little Poland Museum has replicas of the house and basement where later Pope Saint John Paul II lived; the Vilnius convent chapel where Faustina Kowalska had a vision of the Divine Mercy; and the Auschwitz prison cell where Saint Maximilian Kolbe was martyred in 1941.
