Catholic Cultural Association (CCA)
The DMA CCA believes the development and nurturing of the school community is best accomplished in an atmosphere of trust and cooperation with the consideration and respect of the distinctive qualities, talents, abilities, and needs of each person. By providing a vehicle for service, social, and fundraising activities in support of the school, the DMA CCA recognizes the importance of its role in affirming the school community and its members as living expressions of God's love.

The Divine Mercy Academy's Catholic Cultural Associations ( CCA) is composed of dedicated parents and teachers who work together to provide activities and funds to the school. With the hard work and commitment of our families and staff, our school can make strides. The DMA CCA provides an example of our students that together we can make a difference in our community and make it a better place.

"That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." 
John 17:21
