Religious Education Program, 2014 - 2015
The purpose of our Sunday Religious Education program is to help parents in the faith formation of their children. Formation is education in the head and in the heart. This is what begins, or should begin, at home.
At O.L.P.H. a young person attends Sunday sessions for two years, in order to prepare for First Communion.
Candidates for Confirmation attend Sunday sessions for two years in order to be Confirmed.
The Religious Education program is every Sunday, beginning in September. The program ends in May.
On Sundays the classes are at 8:45 to 10 am for students in 1st thru 6th Grades.
Classes are at 11:30 am till 12:45 for students in Grades 7 thru 12.
Registration for the Religious Ed program starts in July. Our office hours are Monday thru Thursday, 10 to 11:45 am and 1:30 to 4:45 pm.

How to register a child or an adolescent for Religious Education at OLPH
To ask about registration times, call Rectory at 718-492-9200.
When you register, you must bring with you the student’s baptism certificate and birth certificate.
Your family must be registered in OLPH parish. You can take care of this first at the rectory office, and then bring your new parish registration card to us.
There is a registration fee: $65 for one child, $95 for two, and $115 for three or more. This helps us provide learning materials during the year.
Please pay at least one half (50%) of this fee when you register your child;
the rest can be paid later in the year.
Only parents or legal guardians can register a child.
Once our Sunday classes begin, our program is given in two sessions:
Grade 1 to grade 6 -- Sunday from 8:45 AM to 10:00 AM
Grade 7 to grade 12 -- Sunday, from 11:30 AM to 12:45 PM
