Home Instruction for Sun, March 29 & Tues, March 31

Hello Parents and Students,


Below you will find the home instruction lessons for Sunday, March 29 & Tuesday, March 31. I have not set a due date (at this time) for the lessons to be completed because I do not want you or your child to feel overwhelmed. We do want them to complete the lessons so that they can complete the curriculum for this year. We will leave all lessons (past and present) on the Faith Formation website, so that you can complete them as time allows. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me and I will do my best to help.
In order for our students to continue to receive faith formation during this time, we have in place a plan for home instruction.  For our younger students this will require, you as their parents to be their catechist.  We also invite you to read, learn and discuss the lessons with your older children as it will give you time to share faith as a family. One suggestion would be to plan a time to work as a family. Take turns reading the chapters, discussing the questions or activities as a family and praying together.

Classes are Suspended March 15 & 17 - Faith Formation at Home

We were just notified by the Archdiocese that Cardinal Tobin has suspended classes throughout the Archdiocese of Newark from March 15-20. This includes the Communion retreat scheduled for this Sunday, March 15.

Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of Newark has announced that he has dispensed the faithful of the Archdiocese from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice.
Additionally, he has suspended the public celebration of Mass for Saturday evening, March 14, and Sunday, March 15, 2020, after evaluating recommendations of state and health officials until further notice.
The celebration of daily Mass will continue. Churches of the Archdiocese will remain open and the faithful are encouraged to pray while maintaining a prudent distance from each other.
Scheduled sacramental celebrations such as weddings, baptisms, or funerals will be permitted, but attendance should be limited to immediate family members only.
