Registration for Elementary Catechesis for the 2019-2020 school year recently began! Elementary Catechesis is our Parish Religious Education program for children in grades Kindergarten-5th Grade. All children who are not in Catholic school are invited and encouraged to attend, including and especially those who have already received their First Communion.
Catechesis will begin on Tuesday, August 20th. However, any family who registers by June 16th is eligible for a discount. Prices are on the registration form.
Important Change: Starting in August 2019, Elementary Catechesis will no longer be on the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (SEAS) Site. Catechesis will also be moving to the Divine Mercy Church Site into the new school buildings!
Adults and teens, including parents and relatives of the children attending Catechesis, are invited and encouraged to serve and volunteer.
For more information and to register, or if you would like to volunteer, go to the Elementary Catechesis page. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call the office and ask to speak with Jacques Delouche, or you may e-mail Jacques.

Here is a panoramic view from July 2, 2013 of the interior of the building which would become Divine Mercy Church.
Because of problems with the bathrooms in church, we have found it necessary to contract with a plumber to tunnel and do repairs to our under-slab sewer pipes. We checked and this is not covered by insurance, nor is the building still under warranty. The cost of the repairs is estimated to be $42,000. Because this is well beyond our budget, we will have a series of second collections to help cover this cost. The first two will be June 23-24 and July 21-22.
Please be generous!
