PACT Religious Education

We will be sending schedules and class assignments for our PACT/Religious Education within two weeks. Returning families- please be sure that your family’s re-registration is submitted.

New Families

Children grades 1-8 who are not attending a Catholic school enroll in a parish Religious Education Program. Parents of families new to our program attend a brief orientation meeting. To schedule a meeting or for more information e-mail us at or call (201) 384- 3062.

Catechetical Ministry

We are setting up our program for next year, and we have several opportunities for volunteers to serve as catechists. There are opportunities for younger grades Tuesday after school and for Sunday before the 10:00 a.m. mass. Your commitment as a catechist is typically once or twice per month. We will help you with the volunteer application required by our Archdiocese of Newark. For more information, speak to Bill Mascitello or call (201) 384-3062 or e-mail

Protecting God’s Children

All volunteers 18 or older are required by our Archdiocese of Newark to attend a Protecting God’s Children seminar. If you never attended a session or it has been three years or longer since you attended, attendance at a session or online recertification is required. A session is being offered here at St. Mary’s Saturday, October 6th in the school beginning with coffee an’ at 9:30 a.m. To register for the session or for more program offerings from our Archdiocese of Newark, visit
