he first set foot in Australia in April 1981, Father Augustine Lazur
from Poland had a mission: to extend the influence of Our Lady of
Jasna Gora to yet another country.
After many interesting adventures, which are recounted in a book
available from the Penrose Park bookstall, Father was led to the
Southern Highlands of New South Wales and in 1984, with a great
deal of faith and the help of countless benefactors, purchased the
property now known as Penrose Park.
May 1997 was a great day of celebration, with the consecration of
the new church.
With the blessing of Our Lady of Mercy, as She is known in Australia
and the support of thousands of faithful pilgrims we have already
witnessed many miracles here.
