UPDATE February 2021
Dear Religious Ed. Families,
Our In-person Religious Ed. classes for grades 2 thru 8 have resumed.
We will closely monitor the situation in the next months mindful of guidelines and restrictions set forth by the State of Ct. and the Diocese of Bridgeport and let families know of any changes. All families with children enrolled in the in person classes will be e-mailed as to our plans moving forward. Please contact Cathy Romano firstname.lastname@example.org or Marie Vandall email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns during this time.
- Grade One: A new program called The Springboard Program will be mostly completed at home, so that the children will be ready to “spring into” grade two in the fall of 2021 Parents will teach the Sign of the Cross, The Our Father, The Hail Mary, and read over the Gospel Weeklies with their child. In addition, we will come together at designated times during the year to meet with the other children in the program. This will give us the opportunity to gather in community.
- Sunday program: In person classes for grades 2 through 6 – We ask that you focus on Sunday Mass and we will continue with our family service projects connected to the Gospel.
The at home students will continue as usual. We will provide you with necessary materials, and we will be here to continue to accompany you through out the year.
Questions, or concerns feel free to email Cathy about grades 1-6 program, firstname.lastname@example.org, or for the Confirmation program grades 7 & 8 email email@example.com, also you may call the office 203 226 5448.
- Tuesday in person program for grades 2 through 6 includes Sunday Mass with family service projects connected to the Gospel are still a part of our program.
This plan is in keeping with the CDC guidelines for cleaning the meeting spaces and social distancing. Pray that all our efforts to minimize exposure to the virus will help stop it from spreading.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we look forward to 2021 and pray that the spiritual life of our Assumption Catholic faith community grow even stronger.
Our goal is to provide a Religious Education Program that consists of sacramental and scriptural 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, who choose to work at home in developing a love of Christ and His Church in their family.
Our religious education program consists of Grades 1- 8. Our October through May program offers Sunday Confirmation prep. session for grades 7th, and 8th at 9:00 am. We also offer Sundays from 10:10 am – 11:15am for grades 2 through 6, and Tuesday, for grades 2 through- 6 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm..
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.
