The Summer RF Program is offered to our parents as an alternative to the traditional once-a-week class format that is held from September through May. The Summer Program will be held for two weeks:
Monday – Thursday
July 10 – 13 and July 17 – 20, 2023
8:45am – 12:10pm
SRF 2023 registration is now Closed.
The Summer Program seeks to accommodate the busy schedules of our families. The required amount of class time is the same as the regular program, but condensed into a two-week period, plus events throughout the liturgical year.
Students will stay “connected” to the parish throughout the year through weekly Mass and by attending 3 catechetical sessions during the Advent, Lent, and Easter seasons. Parental involvement is expected.
The Summer Program is open to students of Grades 1,3,4,5 6,7. For information please call the RF office at 908-284-2929.

Who is eligible to enroll?

The Summer Religious Formation (SRF) is a privilege. All families wishing to be considered for the SRF program (2023) need to be attending Mass on a regular basis. The only way for us to verify regular attendance at Mass is via the weekly envelopes. This is a normal procedure in most parishes for determining active participation. Please note no set amount or any amount is required. The use of the envelopes will be used for verifying attendance only.
Typical class day structure
The class would be led by parish catechists certified by the Diocese of Metuchen who would provide a lesson on catholic doctrine, and an activity to process the material. The students would also participate in Class Mass and prayer services based on the day’s topics.
We also ask that you make a prayerful decision for your Child’s Spiritual Journey and a willingness to help all of the children in our Parish. Together, we can make a difference in the life of a child! We appreciate your commitment in sending your children to us.
Thank you for all you do for the parish at SEAS.
