Religious Education
"Today, perhaps more than ever before, it is important to recognize that learning is a lifelong experience. Rapid, radical changes in contemporary society demand well planned, continuing efforts to assimilate new data, new insights, new modes of thinking and acting." To Teach as Jesus Did, 1972, #43

RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (“RCIA”) program is a journeying process for those who wish to consider converting to Catholicism, those never baptized, or those who are baptized in another Christian faith. The Inquiry is the first part of the process and usually begins late September or early October. Meetings are usually on Wednesday or Thursday evening from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. After the Rite of Acceptance in December, RCIA also meets on Sunday to break down the Word.

Anyone interested at anytime of the year may call Father Henry Sattler at the rectory, 516-931-0818 or Ann Hughes at 516-433-6972.
