St. Mary's Religious Education/Sacrament Prep Grades 7-10

This page contains information about religious education for grades 7/8 and information about sacramental preparation for Confirmation grades 9/10.

 FAQ'S

St. Mary's School has shut down. Does that include all religious education?  Sadly, the school is closing its doors this year and we ask you to keep the school families and faculty in your prayers. BUT the parish religious education program is and will continue to be open and ministering to all of the parish families. 

I heard Confirmation is received in the 8th grade. Is that true? Not at St. Mary's. Confirmation preparation for St. Mary's starts in a candidate's freshman year of high school and continues through their sophomore year. The ceremony takes place in the spring of their sophomore year. 

Why aren't grades 1-6 mentioned here? When our superhero Director of Religious Education(DRE) grades 1-5, Alma Banta, retired, it was decided to add grades 6-8 to the new DRE's responsibilities. Honestly, it was too much. We have hundreds of children in the program so a redistribution of the workload was initiated last year. The Coordinator of Confirmation, Pat Newton, who works in the Youth Ministry department, was given grades 7 and 8 in addition to the Confirmation grades 9 and 10.Our DRE, Toni Wong, is responsible for grades 1-6. While we have separate web pages and departments, we have worked to coordinate our schedules and meeting times. Need to reach Mrs. Wong? Call her at 973-835-7750 x 102. 

When do Religious Education classes start?  We have 2 semesters, Fall and Spring. All classes/meetings will be virtual via ZOOM. On line registration opens by July 22 for all grades 1-10. The on line registration closes on Friday, September 4, 2020. After that date you can register in person at the Religious Education building and a $25.00 late fee will be assessed. You can register on line here .
