Religious Education News
|Patricia A Marshall, Director||We are sponsoring a Diocesan Workshop to train Catechists and all those interested how to recognize and encourage the faith development of students with special needs. Register in the Religious Ed. Office if interested.
Registration: If you have not registered for the 2012-2013 Religious Education School Year, please do so as soon as possible. We also offer a special needs class on Thursday afternoon under the direction of Mrs. Jeanne May.
The Kindergarten Pilot Program was a success and so we will continue Kindergarten classes on Monday and Tuesday afternoons (4:15-5:30).

The Religious Education Program is not the sole provider of your child’s religious education. Rather it is intended to supplement the religious formation you are already giving your child in your home. The administration of the School of Religion consists of the Director and one assistant. Parishioners volunteer to teach in the Religious Education program. They are called Catechists. Catechists and other volunteers such as aides and substitutes are always needed and welcome. Training is available.
Class schedule is as follows:
- Monday from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm for Grades K,1,2,3,4,5,6
- Tuesday from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm for Grades K.1,2,3,4,5,6
- Tuesday from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm for Grades 6,7,8
- Thursday from 4:45 pm to 6:00 pm for Grades K,1,2,3,4,5,6
- Thursday from 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm for Special Needs
C.A.R.E. is an acronym for Catechist Accreditation in Religious Education. The C.A.R.E. program is a catechist formation program, consisting of four level(sessions of classes) to complete the program…Levels A,B,C,D. Level are offered in the fall and in the spring. At the completion of all four levels of the program, catechists will receive a “Certificate of Accreditation” in June of the appropriate year which certifies the catechist with the Diocese of Metuchen.
Vacation Bible School is offered each summer. Volunteers are welcome.
