Shrine Church of Saint Jude

Dear Families,

Many things have changed in the past two years and even now we can never know what the future has in store for us.  As of this printing, we plan on having in-person Religious Education classes beginning in September. Religious Education is all about supporting parents who are the primary catechists to their children. Faith is not something we can learn in a class that meets a few hours a week.  Faith is something we live and grow into with our families.  Nothing we do in Religious Education class would make any sense to your children if the faith was not a part of your home life. Practicing the faith at home includes praying together, reading the Bible together, talking about faith, and, most importantly, attending Sunday Mass with the family. With great thought, prayer and contemplation the Shrine Church of St. Jude is restructuring the Religious Education program.  

Certain mandates are still required:

Catholic parents who wish to have their children receive the sacraments are required to send their children to formal religious education yearly starting with the first grade.  

Two complete years are required before the reception of the sacrament of First Holy Communion. 

Families participating in the program should be registered in the Shrine Church of St. Jude parish.

Added  is a directive by the Diocese of Brooklyn to increase classes.
