WHEN YOU VISIT
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with an usher when you visit.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! However, we do request that shorts be of a conservative length (no “short-shorts”) and that in general, clothing be respectable and conservative.
HOW DO I GET TO DIVINE MERCY?
Divine Mercy is located at 1940 N Courtenay Pkwy, Merritt Island FL 32953.
Here is a map.
WHERE DO MY CHILDREN GO?
“Let the little children come to me” Matthew 19:14 All children are invited to attend Mass in the main church with their families.
I'M NOT CATHOLIC... IS IT OKAY FOR ME TO PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNION?
If you are not Catholic you are invited to process up during Communion for a blessing. When you reach the Priest or Eucharistic Minister please fold your arms over your chest to signal that you would like a blessing.
AM I EXPECTED TO PUT MONEY IN THE OFFERING?
If you are visiting with us, we don't expect you to put money in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by. If you consider Divine Mercy your church home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving on a weekly or monthly basis. You can give by check or cash during the service, or you can sign up for online giving here.
I HAVE A HEARING PROBLEM. IS THERE ANY SPECIAL ASSISTANCE?
Our church has been equipped with a hearing loop to help those that need hearing assistance. You will need to manually activate your T-coil or “telephone” setting on your hearing aid or cochlear implant in order to use the loop to hear better. If you don’t know if you have a T-coil, please consult with your audiologist or hearing aid professional. If you do not have an aid or implant we do have a limited number of headsets that can be used.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
Registering your family with the church is how we know you are a part of our church community. This allows us to keep track of sacramental records and to keep you informed of what is going on in the church. There are registration packets available at the Information Kiosk in the back of the church, in the parish office, or by clicking here and filling it out online.
