Mass for Summer Religious Virtual Religious Ed Families August 21

Our Summer Religious Ed Program was a great success! We look forward to celebrating Sunday, August 21 at 8:00 am, 10:00 am and 12:00 pm Mass with the families that participated in our virtual Summer Religious Ed program. This is a wonderful opportunity to have our children and family gather as a church community.



Catechists Needed

Boldly go where many have gone before and help pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This Fall, over 300 children and young people, grade 1 through grade 8, will sign up to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith. Currently, over 100 of these children and young people have no catechist to teach them. You can help by becoming a catechist for Religious Education. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes begin September 21. If interested or for more information, contact Joanne Chiusano in the Religious Education office, or call 732-758-8568.



What news is that? The Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This year, the Religious Education Program is excited to welcome students and parents back into our building to learn more about our beautiful Catholic faith. If you love our faith and enjoy speaking about it, then you will love serving in catechetical ministry. We have class options on Wednesdays and Sundays and there is no weekly commitment to serve. Please read “The Top Reasons to Become a Catechist” and to see the different ways you can help the children of our parish grow in their relationship with Jesus and our Church. Call Religious Education at 732-758-8568 or email
