Dear Families:

Welcome to St. Theresa Religious Education Program.

St. Theresa Parish offers an outstanding religious education program to help parents fulfill their promise at their child’s baptism: to educate them in the faith.

All classes for grades K – 9 will be held in St. Theresa School. Please see the registration form that outlines the schedule of classes.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated in Grade 2, and First Holy Communion is celebrated in Grade 3. The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in Grade 9 with two years of preparation in our program before making Confirmation. Students are required to attend special retreats to prepare them for the reception of these Sacraments.

We are so grateful to our team of volunteers. Classes are forming, but we do need more catechists, so please let us know if you are interested in teaching a class or being an aide and if you have a grade preference. No experience is necessary. We will hold training classes during the summer months. We also offer tuition incentives to catechists.

Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions or concerns.

Email us at religioused@sttheresatrumbull.org or call our office at 203-261-4706.  Thank you and continued blessings!

“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing make you afraid.  All things are passing.  God alone never changes.
Patience gains all things.”  – St. Teresa of Avila

You accepted the obligation to nurture your child in the Catholic Faith and help prepare and participate in the Sacramental life of the Church.
