Dear friends in Christ,

Welcome to a new year of Catechetical Ministry at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. Our Religious Education team is looking forward to seeing you and working with you again (or for the first time!) as we all continue opening our hearts to the fire of God’s love.

At Saint Elizabeth’s, in conjunction with our Ignite Program, we are making an effort to help each student and family to grow in knowledge of our Catholic faith. Our goal is that our children will take the Good News of Jesus Christ and share it with others. We catechize so that each student will come to a deeper conversion to Jesus Christ year by year.

We are grateful for your willingness to journey with our young people, and we admire your decision to be echoes of our Lord’s message. As we continue to build our own understanding of our faith, I strongly encourage all catechists, aides, and subs to participate in our Workshop on Saturday, September 10th, from 9:00 to 12:00. We will begin with 9:00 Mass at the church, followed by a presentation, “Listening Voices” with Mary Ann Kaicher in Classrooms 7 & 8.

You are always welcome in the Office of Religious Education. I am looking forward to the new year, as we share our faith lives together. Do not hesitate to come in and see me, if you have any questions or concerns. Our office number is 973-927-7077 and my cell # is 973-722-3299 and my email is FrHernan
