Our Religious Education Program provides the spiritual formation of Grade K-8 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. There will also be retreats, masses, and family meetings throughout the academic year.

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, the development of their prayer life and a conscious participation in Mass.

Registration can be completed, during the months of June and July for the next academic year, via a fillable PDF registration form available on our website which can be submitted through the email to olmercyreligion@gmail.com OR mailed c/o Ana Tavares, DRE to 70-01 Kessel Street, Forest Hills, NY 11375.

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.
