Our Catechist will provide education about Christian life as a member ot the Roman Catholic Church at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton for K thru 8th grade. The goal of the catechist is to get the children to invite Jesus into their lives, by promoting and supporting them to be active in the Christian Community of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and to prepare them for their sacraments. Through varied learning processes, personal and group prayer, and service projects students will demonstrate the strength of the commitment to God and the church. With the help of parents the children's love of Jesus will grow and be nourished by attending the RE classes and Mass to gain a further understanding of the love of God.
The Religious Education program has classes for students in Kindergarten to 8th grade.
K thru 5th grade attend class on Wednesday afternoons from 4:45 pm to 6:00 pm. Grades 6th to 8th attend class on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. The classrooms are located in the Parish Center and also in the lower level of All Saints Chapel. Each class has one catechist and at least one aide. All adults working with children must attend a one time VIRTUS class "Protecting God's Children". These classes are held periodally here and at other parishes in the Diocese of Trenton. Anyone working with children must be fingerprinted electronically at Morphotrak, located in Toms River.
Registration packets can be picked up at the Religious Education Office or notify Mrs. Downing by email and a packet will be sent to you. The RE program runs from September to May.
