From the Office of Religious Education

The time for First Eucharist is fast approaching. Our enthusiastic children who have been working so hard will join us at the Table of the Lord at the following times:  Saturday, May 2 at 5:00 Mass, Sunday, May 3 at 12:00 and Sunday May 10 at 9:00. We look forward to our forty youngsters taking this important step.

Congratulations and many thanks to the sacrament classes and their parents who worked so hard at our "Jesus Day." Children, you were attentive, involved and respectful of each other and parents, the day was a success because of all your efforts. We thank you all! 

Our Symbolon series continues on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 in the school library. This week, Symbolon will focus on "A Walk Through the Mass". All are welcome.

Registration for next year's classes is open now. If you have not received a registration form or would like to enroll your child for the first time, please contact the Religious Ed. office at 973-669-8331.
