A MESSAGE FROM OUR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR FELICIA FORGER

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 2021-2022 - REGISTRATION ON-GOING

It’s too early for Back-to-School even though stores are sending a different message!

However, it is not too early to register for Religious Education and Confirmation classes for this year which will begin in September.  Forms are available on-line at the parish web site: olca.org under the “Religious Education” and “Forms” tabs, stopping-by the Parish Offices, or contacting Felicia Forger by email religiouseducation@olca.org or call 781-894-3481 x3.

This is greatly appreciated to plan for books, supplies and teachers. Speaking of teachers, would you be interested in helping either as a teacher, substitute teacher or aide? How about “Team Teaching” so that if one person could not be there, the other could be depending on your schedules? Classes are Sunday morning in-between the parish Masses in the school building. We will observe safety protocols as determined at the time by the State and Archdiocese as we successfully observed this past year. The children enjoyed being together - a testament to the commitment of the teachers and aides to provide a safe and happy learning environment, which we will do again. Thank You and Summer Blessings!
