Religious Education and Training
Come and See and Learn
Do you and your children desire to re-live the Bible Days? Perhaps you
would like to take a trip in Noah's Ark or ride a donkey into
St. Paul the Apostle Roman Catholic Parish offers Religious Ed.
Classes on Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 11AM for Levels Pre-K to Level
8. Sr. Eileen Treanor PBVM, Pastoral Associate, is the Director.
There are 22 Catechists who teach 10 classes. Hospitality, hot
chocolate and snacks, are offered each Saturday morning before 9:15
The classes consist of Bible Study, Drama, Story-Telling, Music,
Videos, Choir Practice and preparation for the Sunday Liturgy. Our
theme is "Learn on Saturday" and "Live it on Sunday." Families are
expected to attend Maas at St. Paul's Church - preferably the 9:15 AM
Family Mass. We follow the syllabus of the archdiocese of New York.
Children at the various levels receive a School Bag, Take-Home Folder,
Bible, High-Lighter, Pencil, etc. and a Religion Book.
Pre-K uses materials published by Pflaum. Kindergarten to Level 7 use
"Blest Are We" published by Benziger & Co. Level 8 uses "Confirmed
in the Spirit" by Benziger & Co.
The children who are preparing for their First Holy Communion have a
two year preparation period. Classes continue after First Holy
Communion. Confirmation also has a two-year preparation period.
We also have a preparation program for children and teen-agers who
desire the Sacrament of Baptism. It is called "The Rite of Christian
Initiation of Children" (RCIC). That is also on Saturdays.
On Mondays at 7:30 pm we have a Discussion Group for adults seeking
Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation or desiring to have their
marriage blest with a Religious Ceremony. (Rite of Christian Initiation
for Adults - RCIA)
Perhaps you have been away from the Church and you would like to
"Come Home" but you have some questions. You are very welcome to
attend the Monday Discussion Group at 7:30 PM in Sr. Eileen's office
in the school.
All participants in our formation program are expected to attend our
Family Mass at 9:15 am on Sundays, and become an active member of
St. Paul the Apostle Church Family.
