Faith Formation

Our goal is to work together to form a partnership dedicated to the faith formation of your child and your family. Faith Formation happens first within the family. The Rite of Baptism calls parents to commit to “raising children in the practice of the faith”, which affirms that parents are the first and most important teachers of the Catholic faith. Through this commitment, our children and families will continue to develop a greater love for God and Church and our Faith Formation programs will continue to support what goes on in the home. Besides attending Faith Formation sessions, it is essential that your family participate in Mass weekly. All these experiences give the children/family the opportunity to build their faith, grounded in God’s love, family experiences, and the witness of others and is brought to fruition as we celebrate as a parish family of faith during the Eucharist.

For all Catechetical/Faith Formation sessions whether in the school, in church or any church building face coverings are required (regardless of vaccine status). 



COVID GUIDELINES FOR CATECHETICAL/FAITH FORMATION SESSIONS

"Face coverings: Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 251 on August 6, 2021, making mask- wearing mandatory indoors for staff, students, and visitors in schools. The Archdiocese will adapt the same mask-wearing protocols for catechetical programming. This will remain in effect until such time as the
Governor rescinds the order and the Archdiocese gives further direction regarding mask-wearing in schools.


Per the Governor's Executive Order, masks may be removed indoors when, among other listed circumstances:
 *wearing one would inhibit the individual's health, such as in extreme heat (in extreme heat Faith Formation will meet virtually or in church if space allows)
 

*when the individual is engaged in activity that cannot physically be performed while wearing a mask, (Faith Formation students do not engage in physical activity)


* such as eating or drinking, or playing a musical instrument that would be obstructed by a face mask. (there will be no eating and drinking at Faith Formation sessions)


* when a student’s documented medical condition or disability, as reflected in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Educational Plan pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, precludes use of a face mask;  Please note that subsequent Executive Order No. 253 requires individuals seeking a medical exemption from mask wearing to produce written documentation from a medical professional to support the exemption. Self- attestations and parental attestations are not sufficient for this purpose. Written documentation is to be from a board-certified physician certified in the specialty area encompassing the diagnosis and who is currently treating the individual for that condition."(Archdiocese of Newark)
