About St. Anthony's
Religious Education Program

The goal of our parish religious education program is to help young people develop morally, grow in their knowledge of the Catholic faith and participate in the sacramental life of the Church.

Our elementary/middle school program involves classroom learning sessions, communal prayer and worship experiences, service opportunities and sacramental preparation.

Overview

Each year builds upon and stresses the tenets of our faith as the child grows in “age, grace and wisdom.” Classes meet after school for one hour for 26 weeks. Central to our curriculum is the gospel.  Each week the children learn about our Sunday liturgy (appropriate to their age level) and through activities, songs, and story learn the message of the gospel.  Additionally, they learn about our doctrines, teachings and, prayers with the curriculums catechism book.  Special education classes and Tutorial classes are offered for children who need additional services. 

We welcome all members of our parish family to share our faith with our children through our many programs.
Please call 516-764-0048 ext. 2520 for more information. 

Weekly Schedule
Levels 1-6: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, 3:45-4:45 PM or 5:00-6:00 PM
Level 7/8: Tuesday or Thursday evenings, 6:15–7:15 PM or 7:30–8:30 PM

Family Mass

The purpose of the committee is to enhance participation in the family liturgy as one grows in a deeper understanding of living as a community “centered in the Eucharist”.   We meet from September through May to help plan the weekly 9:30am Sunday Mass for families and children.
Each Sunday following the 9:30 Mass there is a Family Mass Coffee Hour for families to gather and spend some social time together.  The committee also prepares ongoing and meaningful liturgical projects during Advent and Lent to enhance family experiences during the week.  Those on the committee set-up the coffee and refreshments and clean up afterwards. 

First Reconciliation & Eucharist

The program includes a two-year preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Interwoven into the curriculum the children are prepared sacramentally with materials specifically written for these two sacraments as well as communal prayer and worship experiences.

Confirmation

Level 7 & 8

The formal preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation takes place during this 2 year preparation program: • Classroom/Teaching (Kerygma). Classroom lessons which emphasize the teachings of the Church through scripture and tradition and how our faith is experienced in our changing world. 

• Service (Diakonia). A cohesive program that enables the students to live the gospel message through concrete actions in service to others. 

• Prayer/Worship Experiences (Koinoinea). This component stresses the relationship between God and others by engaging the students in prayer, lectures and speaker presentations. It emphasizes an atmosphere of openness that will enable students to grow in their faith. 

• Liturgy (Leiturgia). the Worship of God, “setting apart” time (Acts 13:2) to give thanks and praise to God. The weekly celebration of Mass is central to the faith development of each child and family. 

Service Hours
Service hours are a requirement for Confirmation.  Students in our 2-year Confirmation program (grades 7 & 8) volunteer to serve at a non-profit, charitable organization for 10 service hours each year.
