 Religious Education Program

 


Our parish religious education program (also known as "C.C.D.") serves many children and adults.  Below is a brief overview of the program for children and an introduction to the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.  Please call the parish office for more information.

 


 

AN OVERVIEW OF THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS

 

 

Religious Education Classes are available for children six years old and/or in grade one, through high school.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.)is for those who are not Roman Catholic and who now seek entrance into the Catholic Church; it is also for baptized Catholics who have not been raised in the faith or for those who simply wish to learn more about their faith.  See further explanation to the right.

Adult Faith Formation Programs (such as Bible studies, etc.) are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about their faith.

 

PRAYER AND STORY CLASS
For six year olds and those in the first grade

PRE-SACRAMENT CLASS
This is the first year of preparation for First Communion.
for those who are seven years old or older and in at least the second grade


FIRST COMMUNION CLASS
The final year of preparation for First Communion.
The First Communion class is open only to those who have completed the Pre-Sacrament Class.


POST SACRAMENT CLASS
This is for those who have received First Communion,
but are not old enough for Pre-Confirmation Class.

PRE-CONFIRMATION CLASS
This is the first year of preparation for Confirmation.
It is open to those who are eleven years old or older,
and to those who have completed three years of religious education classes.

 

CONFIRMATION CLASS
This is the final year of preparation for Confirmation.
The Confirmation class is open only to those who have completed the Pre-Confirmation class.


RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (R.C.I.A.)
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) is for those sixteen years of age or older who have not completed the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist). It is also for those adults who want to learn more about the Catholic faith, or who simply wish to renew their faith.

The R.C.I.A. follows a process marked by different liturgical rites by which the “catechumens” (those hoping to be fully initiated into the church) are guided and gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic way of life. 

BIBLE STUDIES
CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
AND OTHER ADULT FAITH FORMATION ACTIVITIES

From time to time sessions are offered on various topics in Scripture, the teachings of the Church, Catechist courses, etc.  Call the Religious Education office for more information (718-486-6276)


 

Religious education classes for children usually gather each Sunday at 10:20 A.M. in the Gymnasium unless otherwise noted; the children are expected to attend either the 9:30 AM or the 12:30 PM Mass with their instructors.
