Divine Mercy Encounter (DME) is a three-day encounter with the Divine Mercy of Jesus and His call to discipleship. DME reveals to participants authentic Christian living in the Catholic tradition and assists participants who are searching for a deeper meaning, purpose, and hope in life to find those things in a true relationship with God and a community of believers. DME’s primary goal is to enable participants to encounter the Risen Christ in everyday life.
DME begins Friday at 10:00 AM and ends Sunday at 5:00 PM. Any arrivals after 10:30 AM will be asked to attend a future weekend. All candidates must commit to the ENTIRE WEEKEND. DME is held at St. Joseph Church/Bread of Life’s Community Center, located at 147 West 24th Street, Erie, PA 16502. Encounter retreats are usually held the first weekend of February, May, July, and November, though this can change.
ANYONE 16 and older can attend
