The first sta­ge in par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the “Fau­sti­num” Asso­cia­tion is volun­te­ering.

Eve­ry per­son who wishes to par­ti­ci­pa­te in Saint Fau­sti­na­’s work of mer­cy, under the guidan­ce of the Con­gre­ga­tion of Sisters of Our Lady of Mer­cy and is ready to ful­fil the fol­lo­wing obli­ga­tions can beco­me a volun­te­er by:

  • Stri­ving to get to know the myste­ry of Divi­ne Mer­cy and deve­lo­ping the atti­tu­de of trust by ful­fil­ling the will of God as found in the com­mand­ments and duties of one­’s sta­te in life,
  • Say­ing the Cha­plet of Divi­ne Mer­cy,
  • Per­for­ming daily at least one act of mer­cy towards one­’s neigh­bo­ur by deed, word, or pray­er, out of love for Jesus.

Volun­te­ers bene­fit from the for­ma­tion for apo­stles of Divi­ne Mer­cy in com­mu­ni­ties or indi­vi­du­al­ly. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on the for­ma­tion pro­cess can be obta­ined from Fau­sti­num secre­ta­riat.

Entry to the Asso­cia­tion is pre­ce­ded by a per­so­nal meeting with a sister respon­si­ble for for­ma­tion. After such discern­ment, a per­son who wants to join the Asso­cia­tion fills in the Dec­la­ra­tion docu­ment for a volun­te­er. The appli­ca­tion can be made only on the ori­gi­nal Dec­la­ra­tion cards ava­ila­ble from the Fau­sti­num secre­ta­riat. As con­fir­ma­tion of accep­tan­ce into the Asso­cia­tion, a volun­te­er rece­ives a let­ter signed by the Pre­si­dent of “Fau­sti­num.” After a year of volun­te­ering, one can apply for mem­ber­ship.
