Religious Education

Our Religious Education Program begins in first grade and continues through tenth grade. Children must complete religious education for grades 1-8 to be enrolled in the Confirmation program. Classes are held at the Msgr. Murphy Center across from St. Maurice Church.

For the 2020-2021 program, all classes/all grades will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:15pm. The first class, for all grades, will begin with a short informational meeting (15-30 minutes) for the parents in the gym, while students begin instruction with their teachers.

We will be following state guidelines for COVID safety procedures.

  • small class sizes
  • 6 feet distancing
  • face covering
  • hand sanitizing
  • one-way walking traffic
  • continue separate entrance/exit doors
  • We will offer a home schooling option for most grades.

There will be a scheduling change for the upcoming school year. All classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 6:00-7:15pm. This will allow extra time for building cleanliness.

Sponsor Certificates

The Archdiocese of Hartford has a new form to be completed by persons asked to be a sponsor. The parish priest no longer fills out a document of suitability. The applicant receives the form, and honestly completing it, makes the affirmation of his/her willingness and suitability. It is then returned to the parish or person conducting the ceremony.

Please call the parish office if you are in need of a form.
