Transfiguration of the Lord Parish Religious Education Program

Welcome to our page! We are a Roman Catholic Religious Education Program located at Transfiguration of the Lord Parish in the Diocese of Metuchen.

The mission of our religious education is to help families grow in faith by teaching the traditions and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. These teachings are supported by Church documents and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Our catechists are properly formed and have completed the child safety protocol of the Diocese of Metuchen.

Did you know that Mass attendance is central to our Faith? Catholic parents are obligated to teach their children by example the meaning and value of attending Mass. “The greatest stumbling block for children at Mass is that their parents do not cherish the hour.” Children should see how Mom and Dad bow their heads in earnest prayer during Mass. They should see how Mom and Dad sing praise to God with joy in their faces, how they listen hungrily to His Word and receive Him reverently in the Eucharist. Children should catch the spirit of their parents meeting the living God.

If you have children in grades K to 8, we welcome you! To register just print the registration form by clicking on the link titled Registration Form English 2019-2020 and follow the instructions. The 2019-2020 calendar is also available for printing.

We hope to see you!

Thank you and God Bless!
