Welcome to St. Mary's Confirmation AND NOW INCLUDING RELIGIOUS EDUCATION GRADES 7-8 page

Dear St. Mary's Confirmation Phase 1 & 2 and REFF 7TH & 8TH  Grade Families,

We have been advised Pompton Lakes Schools will be closed due to the Cornavirus. We will be in compliance with the school district and suspend all Confirmation and Religious Education programming effective immediately. As more information becomes available you will be notified.

OKAY...We are shut down but remember we are Resurrection people so there is light ahead. BUT you may ask WHAT ABOUT...

The last classes/meetings for 7th grade and Phase 1 Confirmation?

  • We have put up lessons and assignments on the makeup page for March 15th through April 5th. All students can click on the quick links to the right for their assignments. 
The Youth Mass requirements for 7th-10th grader?
Confirmation Phase 1 Service Hours? Everything is shut down so what do I do now? 
  • You have until June 30th to submit your hours so let's wait and see what happens. HOPE in a Box has been cancelled with no plan to reschedule at this time. We are looking into ways to help our community and abide by the safety mandates. We will let you know about any service opps. 
The May Confirmation Ceremonies?
  • The Bishop has advised, "The celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation is hereby suspended in the Diocese of Paterson. Confirmation retreats should be deferred. As developments continue to unfold, we will assess the situation. When it is prudent, we will make the necessary arrangements for the celebration of the Sacrament", CLICK HERE for Bishop Serratelli's full mandate on Health and Safety Measures for Pastoral Life. 


 Peace in Christ,
