Religious Education & Covid Safety...


Newman has been diligently searching for the best possible situation regarding our religious education classes for the Fall semester of 2020 due to the pandemic & the safety of our children & their families.   Our religious educaiton coordinator, Maureen has been looking for home preparation programs for those parents who choose not to have their children come to Newman for classes.  More information to come about that aspect.  Note that these programs are very easy to navigate and teach.


We are asking that children preparing for the Sacraments...Grades 2 & 9th & 10th graders come to the Center both for the class information & for the bonding & interaction so necessary for the Sacraments.  However, if any parents have an issue with this please call Maureen at Ext. 101 and she will happily work with you with your concerns in mind.


In the meantime, regarding the other classes in our program we would like your feedback...please email or call to let us know your thoughts.
