Dear Parents,

We welcome you to another year of Religious Education at Divine Mercy Parish.

Parents make an important and lasting impact on their children’s lives by enrolling them in Religious Education and encouraging their participation in the life of faith. We thank you for trusting us with the spiritual formation of your children and look forward to serving you and your family in the coming year.

This time of the Coronavirus pandemic has brought many changes to our lives and routines. Now more than ever, we understand the importance of passing on the treasures of our Catholic faith. To better serve you and your family, we have implemented a blended learning program for the coming year. The blended learning program will include digital and on site faith formation. This program will allow for ongoing formation and communication with catechists, our Director of Religious Education, our Youth Ministry program and of course our priests. With our blended learning program, parents will supervise distance instruction and assist with virtual and in person activity. It is imperative that you understand that as parents you are both role models and instructors in the Faith. The most important and essential preparation for the Sacraments is the celebration of the Eucharist every Sunday.

Once again WELCOME, and let us pray together to God, hoping that the coming year will be filled with blessings and happiness for all.


Mrs. Wanda Marty, DFF
