Kindergarten - Grade 8 for the 2016-1017 School Year

This is the second year that our children will join those of St. Joseph Parish, Fitchburg for a combined Religious Education Program to better serve and enrich all of the children. Through their efforts we are able to offer two (2) choices of day and time to make it more convenient for all families to plan their weekly schedules and have your children participate in Religious Education throughout their grammar school years.

Religious Education for grades Kindergarten through grage 8 for all children who do not currently attend Catholic school is offered either on Sunday’s from 10:00 – 11:00 AM or on Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 – 5:00 PM.

Sunday morning classes are held in St. Joseph Church Hall, 49 Woodland St.
Tuesday afternoon classes are held at the Madonna of the Holy Rosary Campus, 118 Theresa St.

Kindly fill out the registration form and bring it with you to the first class. You must choose one day of the week only.

Registration and the First Class begins on:

Sunday, September 11th from 10:00 – 11:00 AM in St. Joseph Church Hall
Tuesday, September 13th from 4:00 – 5:00 PM at Madonna of The Holy Rosary Campus

For Sacramental Preperation for First Penance and First Holy Communion:
For all children regardless of where they attend school; preparation will be seperate from the regular Religious Education classes.  Please see your specific teacher for detailed information and schedules.

If you have students entering the 9th or 10th grade this fall (2016) please be sure to contact the parish to inquire on class location and times. Confirmation Prep. is typically a two year program so it is important to register in a student's freshman year of high school.
Due to our small number of students, St. Anthony does not currently have a high school Confirmation preparation program for the 2016-2017 school year. Because of this, parents & students have requested to attended other area parishes for their prepration.  Permission is only granted with prior approval of the pastor for both parishes - ours and theirs.   Confirmation city-wide, takes place in the early Fall of a students Junior year of high school.

If you have questions or concerns please contact Fr. Leo at 978-342-4706.
