UPDATE April 23, 2020
Dear Assumption Religious Ed. Families,
First Communions and Confirmations have been postponed until the fall. As soon as the church reopens we will be in touch with times and dates
On April 9th, Governor Lamont, in consultation with State Education Commissioner Miguel Cardona, announced that he signed an executive order extending the date for which classes at all public schools statewide remain canceled until at least May 20. This also impacts our Religious Ed. program.
Please continue to access the Gospel Weeklies on line. We ask that you go over the weekly with your child so if and when we do resume the students will be up to date. Here is the link 1138159
I have also sent materials for First Communion prep.
Our Confirmation coordinator Marie Vandall will be sending a separate link for 7th and 8th grade on how access your lessons.
Pray that all our efforts to minimize exposure to the virus will help stop it from speeding.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we look forward to a new catechetical year that we pray will enhance and enlighten the spiritual life of our Assumption Catholic faith community.
Our goal is to provide a Religious Education Program that consists of sacramental catechesis that offer the opportunity for children to open themselves to a deeper understanding of God’s presence in their lives. The program is open to the children of our parish. We offer age-appropriate religious education lessons to help enrich the spiritual lives of the children. We also aim support their parents, who are their children’s primary educators, to work at home in developing a love of Christ and His Church in their family.
Our religious education program consists of K- 8. Our September through May program offers Sunday session for grades 7th, and 8th at 9:00 am. We also offer Sundays from 10:10am – 11:15am for K- 6, and Tuesday, for grades 1 – 6.
Our formation classes are continuous and build one year upon the next. New students must submit a baptismal certificate at the time of registration.Sacramental preparation: Grade 1 is required for Grade 2 in which the children are prepared for First Reconciliation and Eucharist. Grade 7 is required for Grade 8 Confirmation preparation. Students enrolled in a Catholic school must attend First Eucharist and Confirmation classes here at Assumption Church.
