Youth Ministry

Divine Mercy has a Youth Mass which is held on the first Sunday of the month at 5:00pm. This Mass is when our youth actively participate in the liturgy. The CIA, (Catholics in Action youth group) Squires, and Beloved (Young Adults) rotate in leading the monthly Mass. Each group is an active member in the parish and has their own set of trained lectors, ushers and altar servers. They are involved as a musician, a member of the choir, and Eucharistic Minister. They assist in bringing up the Offertory and help pass out the weekly bulletins. After Mass, they gather for fellowship where all are invited to bring something to share and break bread. They join together for Family Adoration time, where they may hear a reflection or just sit in silence listening to what Jesus is telling them. The NEXT Youth Mass will be held on Sunday, March 6th. ALL are invited.

New Website!

The CommTech Ministry recently upgraded the Parish Website to accommodate recent advances in technology in order to adjust to the ever-changing demand of how users browse websites. The new site is mobile-friendly and is connected to most of the commonly used social media channels like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

24 Hours for the Lord

During the Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, and our own Bishop Jaime Soto invite all Catholics in the Diocese of Sacramento to celebrate the 24 hours for the Lord. For 24 straight hours from Friday, March 4, 2016, at Noon until Saturday, March 5, 2016, at Noon, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered continuously here at Divine Mercy and several other parishes throughout the Diocese including our three Newman Centers. 

Catholics In Action

Last Friday, the CIA helped out Pete and Lillian with hospitality by providing food and service at the first Lenten Fellowship Dinner. Our parents donated bread, salad and a simple dessert, and the youth (18 of them!) did the set-up, preparation and serving.
