DMA Family Handbook

Purpose and Objectives:

The Divine Mercy Academy Catholic Cultural Association (DMA CCA) is composed of dedicated parents and tutors who work together to enrich the broader school community.  It does this inwardly, by being a vehicle for service and fundraising for the school - multiplying the manpower and talents of our staff as well as providing funds for special needs as expressed by the Headmaster.  Outwardly, the CCA enriches the school community socially through an emphasis on facilitating relationships between families and in doing so, the CCA seeks to create fertile soil for deeper family faith enrichment. In doing this, the DMA CCA provides an example for our students that through relationships, together we can make a difference for good in our community and in the lives of our neighbors. 

The DMA CCA operates in an atmosphere of trust and cooperation with the school in consideration of the distinctive qualities, talents, abilities, and needs of each person.  CCA members should feel empowered through the organization to articulate questions, concerns, or issues with the school from its members to the headmaster and, if needed, to the DMA Board through its own President, who sits as its representative, on the Board.

“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
