Our Religious Program begins in September and ends in May with our First Communion celebration and Crowning of Mother Mary.
Classes are each Sunday (unless otherwise noted, i.e. school holidays). Our session begins directly after 9:30 a.m. Mass. Students are invited to have a light snack before classes (no snacks will be available until the NYS Health Dept. releases an update on food distrubution) and classes will begin at 10:45 a.m. and end at 12:00 p.m.
To begin with, for very young children, it may often be difficult to comprehend what is happening in a sermon or during the Mass because they are designed on a level that kids cannot yet understand (making it hard for them to sit quietly and pay attention). Religious Ed, on the other hand, teaches the same concepts and values as Mass, in an easier way that is geared towards the students’ ages and levels of understanding. These classes engage students through song, books and games — all while reinforcing the religious truths learned during the week.
It begins with an awareness... or a stirring in one's heart for something more.
It could be a curiosity or a sense of longing for fulfillment. Maybe it is God calling you to explore the life of faith, love and justice within the community of the Catholic Church... The one TRUE church passed down to us for over 2000 years, by apostolic succession.
Open your heart, Come and See
