The Order of St. Paul the First Hermit, known as the Pauline Fathers, is dedicated to spreading devotion to Our Lady, particulary under the form of devotion to Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna of which they have been custodians for centuries. The Pauline Fathers who arrived in Australia in 1982, have two shrines devoted to her: The Shrine of Our Layd of Mercy and the Shrine of Our Lady Help of Christians.
