The Office of Religious Education will conduct all religion classes online for all CCD students until further notice.

Our Religious Education Program provides the spiritual formation of children and adolescents in our parish who do not attend Catholic School.

The students will participate in the blended formation experience of Sadlier’s Christ In Us program, adopted by the Diocese of Brooklyn-Queens, which consists of videoconference meetings with catechists, independent work at home under the guidance of parents, and online submission of assignments. Student attendance will be taken at the videoconference meetings and through their online submission of assignments.

The objectives of the Christ In Us program are to foster a learning environment which promotes the three dimensions of contemporary evangelization:

  • An encounter with Christ,
  • The art of accompaniment, and
  • The witness of missionary disciples.

The study units present a spiral curriculum geared towards cultivating the students’ knowledge of our Catholic beliefs and liturgical year, their identification with the saints as partners in faith, and the development of their prayer life.

Registration can be completed online through either the Google Form (OLM Religious Education Registration Form) available on this website or a fillable PDF which can be submitted through the email listed (olmercyreligion@gmail.com). Proof of Baptism must be provided at the time of registration. Students who transfer into our program are asked to have copies of their Religious Education files sent from their previous church to our office address listed above.
