The Religious Education Program has been busy bringing holiday cheer! For Thanksgiving, the program partnered with a FDNY firehouse in Jamaica to bring Thanksgiving meals to 30 families who use the food pantry at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Parish, Jamaica. Each of our grades was tasked to bring a portion of the meal’s sides: canned vegetables, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, dessert. Some of our eighth grade confirmation students from the program and Divine Wisdom Catholic Academy helped in packing the meals into bags for distribution.
Our program also made Christmas and holiday cards with special messages for the residents of Brandywine Senior Living on Little Neck Parkway. The cards were given out at a special performance.
Registration letters have been sent out and forms for registration can be downloaded from this link.
Please send or bring to the Rectory completed forms and payments. A copy of baptismal certificates must be included for all new registrations. Thank you.
We are pleased to announce the arrival of our new Director of Faith Formation, Rose Ruesing.
Rose has taught in our Catholic Schools. She comes to us from a recent background of youth ministry and is presently a member of the Diocesan Confirmation Retreat Team. She has degrees from St. John’s University and is looking forward to working with Divine Wisdom Catholic Academy and the children and parents of our religious education program.
We wish her all the best and assure her of our prayers and support in her new ministry.
