FAITH FORMATION

2022 – 2023

Learning lets us grow to our full potential

We Are Blessed

Hello Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 Religious Education Program!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone when classes begin on October 2nd.

A few LOGISTICS to mention about this year:

– Our program will remain a hybrid program, like last year. Each class (with the exception of Youth Group – Grades 5-8) will meet once a month in person and once a month on Zoom.

– Grades K-4 will meet one Tuesday a month at 4pm at the Parish Center, and one Tuesday a month at 4pm on Zoom.

– Second Grade: many of you were interested in the once a month IN PERSON class happening on a Sunday – I am happy to report that we will have that class the first Sunday of the month at 9am. (More info to follow about this! Second Grade is also available for the in person class on Tuesdays.) Note: up to date calendars are available via the red buttons below. Second grade only has to pick one IN PERSON class – Sunday or Tuesday.

– Youth Group is for students in Grades 5-8. This will meet the first Sunday of the month IN PERSON at the 6pm Mass the first Sunday of the month.

– Confirmation classes (grades 9 & 10) will meet once a month IN PERSON at the 6pm Mass, and one Sunday a month at 6pm on Zoom.

– Weekly Update emails will continue with important dates and information.

– MUSIC:

John Volpe, our Music Director, is very interested in building the Youth Choir. If your child is interested in singing or playing an instrument at Mass, or even just participating in the Christmas Mass, please let me or John (Javolpay@gmail.com) know!

– FEES:

 Our fees will be the same this year: $75 for children in grades K, 1, 3, 4, 5-8, 9 … $125 for Sacrament years (First Communion, grade 2; Confirmation, grade 10). You can pay via PayPal (click the Yellow Button) and choose Religious Education from the dropdown menu, or mail a check to the Parish Center at 46 Winthrop Street. Scholarships are available, please reach out if you would like more information.

– NEW PASTOR:

As you may have heard, Father John Sheridan will be joining us November 27 as our new Pastor. We are excited to meet him and welcome him here! Please be on the lookout for a Religious Education Advent event where we can meet Father Sheridan (and celebrate the season!).

-ALTAR SERVERS

Has your child received First Communion and is interested in becoming an altar server? Altar servers are back after a break due to Covid, and we are looking for more youth (grades 3 and up) to serve. Please let me or Sister Nancy (ncitro@stmarystcatherine.org) know if your child would like to be trained.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in person the week of October 2!

Up to date calendars are available via the red buttons below.

Thank you,
