Thank you for being a part of our family here at Holy Family Parish and for fulfilling the responsibility you assumed when you had your child or children baptized…that you would be “the first teachers of your children in the ways of the faith.” Helping you to be the best teachers is the reason that Holy Family provides Religious Education Programs for your children. We understand that life is demanding and that the religious education of your children competes with many other activities in your weekly schedule. Please know that the first and most important religious education tool at your disposal is weekly celebration of Holy Mass and participation in the sacramental life of the Church. When you look at the Ten Commandments you see that the first three have to do with God Himself – keeping God first in our lives; respecting his Holy Name; and keeping holy the Lord’s Day [by participation at Mass] – these are first because we are called to love God before anything else. Our love for others and the things of the world flows from our love for God.
- Families whose children attend catholic school and are in the 2nd, 7th and 8th grade are reminded that the children receive the sacraments at the parish where the family is registered, not with the catholic school the child attends. Contact the religious education office for more information at 856-228-2215.
- Homeschooling will meet for the first time of the year on September 10, 2023. Families are invited to attend the Communion Breakfast where material will be distributed. Classes will start the week of September 24, 2023 – Sunday 8:45am – 9:45am; Monday 5:00pm – 6:15pm; and Thursday 8:00am – 9:15am. If you haven’t registered yet, take the time now to register for the coming year.
