All primary grade classes for Summer 2017 have been filled and registration is closed.
Registration forms and information for our Fall classes are now available. Click here.
Classes are offered on Sunday mornings, 2-3 times per month, from 10:15-11:30 in the Holy Trinity School building.
Families with children in grades 1-6 who are registered in any of our program options are asked to attend three family gatherings during the course of the year. Our program offers many opportunities throughout the year to fulfill this requirement. A calendar with dates will be distributed in September and additional events are added during the course of the year.
Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion are a combination of family gathered sessions and home study. There will 2 evening Parent/Child classes for Reconciliation in the fall and 3 evening Parent/Child classes for First Eucharist preparation in the spring. Please note that the Archdiocese of Newark requires two years of preparation for receiving the Sacraments. There will be meetings in the fall for parents who have children receiving Sacraments this year.
For families who are new to our Faith Formation Program, please be sure to provide a copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate with your registration form. If you are transferring from another faith formation program please include a transfer letter from your previous parish.
It is important to remember that our program is meant to complement each family’s practice of their faith. Please attend Mass with your family each week as well as on Holy Days of Obligation. There is no substitution for the Mass. As you plan your family schedules each week do not forget to include Mass as a priority.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Faith Formation if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year. We are here to assist you. We can be reached Monday-Thursday 8:30am-4pm at 908-233-7455. We are located on the second floor of the Parish Center. God bless you!
