RE Classes & Programs


In order to register for Religious Education (RE) you need to be a parishioner of St. Mary’s, Ss Francis and Clare or newly registering in either parish.  If you prefer to stay at your parish, a letter needs to be written to your pastor and Fr. Joe requesting permission to attend our RE program.  When this has been established and approved, please bring in your child’s original Baptismal Certificate, which we copy for our records and return the original back to you, and a RE Registration Packet.  If you are coming from another Catholic parish or school, we need to receive a Transcript Form from your current program on classes you have taken.

If your child is of another Christian Faith they need to make a “Profession of Faith,” if their Baptism is in union with the Catholic faith or be Baptized in the parish to receive other sacraments of the Church. This would be for children from Kindergarten – High School.  Young adults, college students and adults need to attend the R.C.I.A. classes and call the main Parish office at (609) 298-0261 for more information.

RE Classes begin after Labor Day.  All of our 2018-2019 classes will be held in St. Mary’s School.

Session A – Monday Monthly 6:00-7:30PM 3rd-6th grade
