Divine Mercy Parish provides our students with formal preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Students receive these sacraments for the first time during their 2nd grade year.  At Divine Mercy parish we strive to engage our parents, the primary catechists, in this important process. Below is the 2017-2018 schedule for extra formation events for 2nd grade students and parents.  These events are in addition to regular Sunday morning Religious Education classes. October 2, 2017:   2nd grade parent meeting October 23, 2017:  Mandatory First Reconciliation Retreat (with parent) December 4, 2017:  First Reconciliation @ 8:30a January 21, 2018:  2nd grade Church Tour February 12, 2018:  Mandatory First Communion Retreat (with parent) April 25, 2018:  First Holy Communion Practice @ 7pm for April 29th First Communion Mass April 29, 2018: First Holy Communion Mass @ 10:30am May 2, 2018: First Holy Communion Practice @ 7pm for May 6th First Communion Mass May 6, 2018:  First Holy Communion Mass @ 10:30am SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION FOR 3RD-6TH GRADE STUDENTS: Students in 3rd-6th grade that have not received the Sacraments of Reconciliation and/or First Communion as 2nd graders are encouraged to attend class with their peers.  In addition, they are offered a special sacramental preparation course that meets once a month.  These students receive those Sacraments with the 2nd grade class in December and April/May.  If you have any questions about your child’s Faith Formation please contact Maria Lopeman, Director of Religious Education at 913-219-4833 or
