Breaking Open the Word
(BOW)
is an age-appropriate celebration of the Liturgy of the Word for children in grades K-2 that takes place during the 10:00 Mass on Sundays from September through May. A team of volunteers lead the weekly sessions and additional volunteers are always needed. BOW leaders are trained, given materials and support, and conduct one session every 4-6 weeks. All that is needed on your part is a desire to help children grow in faith. Contact Eileen Iammartino at 523-2405 or eiammartino@stekc.org for additional information. Dads are welcome, too!

 



 

 

St. Elizabeth's School of Religion
(SOR)
is a combination home/parish family program for families with children in grades 1-8 who do not attend St. Elizabeth school. Parents teach their own children at home each week, using a textbook approved by the Diocese. Once a month, parents and children registered in the program meet in Seton Hall for support, prayer and a group lesson. Family Meetings take place on Sunday mornings and are a required part of the program. Children not attending St. Elizabeth school who desire to receive 1st Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist prepare for these sacraments through the SOR.
