Dear Parents/Guardians/parishioners,

Greetings! Praised be Jesus Christ !

I hope this letter finds you and your families healthy and enjoying time together. I am writing today to provide you with some important updates to our Religious Education program for the 2020-2021 year. It has been a difficult season for our Parish due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, given extreme budget constraints I had to make difficult staffing decisions which resulted in the elimination of the position of Director of Faith Formation. Over the past few months as a Parish we have had to reduce the hours for our parish secretary. As you can imagine this has put us in a unique position in regards to our Religious Education program. I have reached out to Sean Moran and Jennifer Mahon two members from our parish and they will be coordinating the Religious Education program for children in grades one thru ten. Sean and Jen will coordinate class schedules, curriculum, and parent resources. We have decided that ALL religious education classes will be taught through a homeschool/online format. We are in the process of finalizing the details and putting together plans for parents/guardians working with their children at home. If you have any questions please email Sean or Jennifer. Sean Moran can be reached at and/or Jennifer Mahon at Sean and Jennifer will do their best to respond to all emails within 48 hours.

Our anticipated start date for religious education classes will be Wednesday November 4, 2020, we will be having classes on Wednesdays only for the 2020-2021 year. We will be holding registration for all grade levels during October 13, 2020 through October 26, 2020. The cost for religious education this year will be $0.00 per child in grades 1, 3,4,5,6,7,8. For our students in Grade 2 preparing for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion the cost for religious education will be $30.00 per child. For our students in grades 9 and 10 preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation the cost will be $30.00 per child. Additionally, there will be mandatory parent meetings for students in Grades 2, 9, and 10. The meeting schedule will be posted on the website and Facebook page. Attached you will also find a registration form, please complete the form and email it to Sean or Jennifer. Tuition for students in grades 2,9, and 10 will be collected at the upcoming meeting.

It is our goal to collaborate with all families in order to provide your child(ren) with a positive experience that will enhance their relationship with the Church. Please continue to check the Parish website and follow us on our facebookpage to receive new updates.

We appreciate your feedback, patience and understanding as we navigate this difficult time in our Parish and our world and assist your family in educating your child in this treasured faith.

I look forward to seeing all of you at our Saturday 4:00pm and Sunday 10:00am English Masses in which we celebrate the source and summit of our faith- The Holy Eucharist.

Fr John M. Capuci, Pastor
