Religious Education for Children
Our Religious Education Program provides Catholic Faith Formation to children of Catholic parents attending secular schools. These classes not only educate children about Jesus and the Catholic faith but also prepare children to receive the sacraments of Penance, Holy Communion, and Confirmation. The classes also include Child Lures Prevention (keeping children safe) and how your child can manage bullying!
If you are interested in signing up for Religious Education, please fill out this form and have it turned into the rectory attention to the Director of Religious Education, Rosemarie Walsh at EXT. 104.
If you or someone you know is thinking of becoming a Catholic, then the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the way to go. The RCIA is a process that consists of a combination of participation at Sunday Mass and instruction on the teachings and customs of the Roman Catholic Church. RCIA is also for baptized Catholics who have not received both First Holy Communion and Confirmation. The sessions meet once a week on Thursday at 7pm in the Rectory.
If you are seriously thinking of entering this program, please call the Rectory at 718-384-0223 and ask for Rosemarie Walsh.
