RELIGIOUS EDUCATION REGISTRATION 2023-2024
Please note that our ability to offer in-person Religious Education classes at St. Francis de Sales Parish is dependent on the Archdiocese, school, state, local health officials, and safety guidelines. The safety of our students, volunteers, and parishioners is a top priority. . We ask that you register your child for Religious Education by August 5, 2023 so we may plan, order materials, and prepare for a safe and successful year.
Our First Communion Program requires a student to attend Religious instructions for two years.
If there is any 10th grade student who attends a Catholic High School, you are to register and attend Confirmation classes.
Grades 1 – 6 meet on Saturday, 9:30 am – 10:30 am.
Grades 7 – 10 meet on Monday, 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
The faith formation of children is vital to their spiritual development and to the growth of the Church. Children come to know God first through their parents. As Pope Paul VI once said, The Parents are the first teachers of their children in the ways of the faith.
Sister Regina Arena, an alumni of St. Anthony high school and a member of the community of the Religious Teachers of St. Lucy Filippini, will be the Director of the St. Francis de Sales Religious Education Program. Sister Regina is a certified teacher and former Principal. Sister Regina was also a DRE at St Joseph, Winsted.
She also established the Religious Education Program at St. Maron Church, a Maronite Rite Catholic Church, in Torrington where she was later named as an advisor of the Religious Education Program. She also presented workshops to the catechists in the Diocese of St. Maron.
