A Note from the Director of Faith Formation
Dear Newman Community,
As we gear up for another year of Religious Education, we are looking forward to a grace filled and successful year as we share with you in this important ministry!
Here’s a quick recap on the changes that have occurred over the summer months. After many years serving the parish as the Director of Religious Education, Sister Nancy has retired. I will now be serving as Director of Faith Formation and Regina Melendrez will serve as Coordinator of Children’s Ministry (K-5 religious education). Together, with Fr. Alex we will support and assist parent’s and guardians efforts to meet the promises made at baptism to hand on the precious gift of faith. In order to best meet the needs of as many families as possible, and for Fr. Alex to be an integral part of your child’s faith formation, we have made some adjustments to our class schedule. More details at left.
Please review the new class schedules in preparation for open registration which will begin next weekend, August 12th and 13th.
We are not currently taking new registrations in order to allow all those who have pre-registered to sign up for new class times. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or at the parish office, 522-6202.
