Faith Formation is a life-long process. Our Religious Education program strives to provide programs that will foster worship and service for people of all ages. Our hope is to assist our members in obtaining a lasting, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and fostering an active participation in the liturgical and apostolic life of the Church.
Our Children’s Religious Education program is a shared effort between families and catechists. Through this process, we strive to assist our young people in developing a deeper relationship with Jesus. Each child will learn from faith experiences and catechetical instruction provided by faith filled volunteers who have answered the call to serve in this ministry. Catechists are provided ongoing faith formation programs that apply towards the Diocesan Catechist Formation Initiative.
Parents are encouraged to take an active role in this program. So that your child feels a part of this Church community, Fr. Michael Santangelo, our pastor, encourages participation at the weekly celebration of the Eucharist. By your word and example, your child begins to experience and feel the love of God in family and community. Parents are also encouraged to volunteer and assist in the Religious Education Program as needed.
Registration for the Religious Education Program begins in May for currently enrolled families. If you wish to learn more about our program, please call or email the Religious Education Office 732-785-0872 EpiphRE2@aol.com or access our Religious Education Handbook.
