Religious Education

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.

Religious Education is looking for one catechist for the August session (July 31st- August 4th) for our 2nd grade.  If you have the time to share with our second graders and share their enthusiasm as they prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and  First Communion contact Irene Clark at or call 856-228-2215.
Thank you!!
Vacation Bible School: Hero Hotline: Called together to serve God!
Will be held the week of July 10 th -14 th from 8:30-12:15 at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish.
Just a note: Sts. Peter and Paul Parish and Church of the Holy Family will be doing Vacation Bible School together. Since enrollment for Vacation Bible School has been low and volunteers are less this is a way to have a Vacation Bible School this year by combining the two parishes. Vacation Bible School DOES NOT TAKE THE PLACE OF SUMMER SESSION. Vacation Bible School runs like a camp. Summer Session is an educational program that condenses the year long program into one week. If you haven’t registered for the Summer Session, take the time to do so. We are preparing for our classes now.
