The Origin of Divine Mercy Hospice
The founders decided to name this Hospice Divine Mercy because the inspiration to start this Hospice came on Divine Mercy, Sunday, April 27, 2014, at the Canonization of John Paul II and John XXIII at Saint Peter's Square in Vatican City.
The founders were at the Canonization of John Paul II particularly because of the profound impact that he had on their lives and in the lives of all Catholics around the world, during his reign as Pope from 1978 and until his death in 2005. Although Divine Mercy Hospice Services has Catholic origins, we do not consider ourselves a Catholic Hospice. Divine Mercy means God's endless merciful love towards all people. Thus, we believe wholeheartedly that whether someone is Catholic, Christian or any denomination, God loves them.
This being essential to our faith and our faith being essential to our business, we do not discriminate as to whom we serve. All patients will be loved and cared for by us as if they were part of our family, which is important. Especially at the end of life, when we just want to be surrounded by the people we love like our family and friends. We personally understand our patients' comfort and the well-being of their family will always come first because that is merciful love, which means more to us than business.
Therefore, no matter who you are or what you believe, “We’ll walk with you along the way …”
