Religious Education Begins with First Grade

Do you have a child or grandchild entering 1st Grade in September? 

Register them now! Stop by the Religious Ed office in the lower church, call us at 631-754-6436, or email us at or visit our website at, click on “Our Ministries” then “Religious Education” to view and print out registration forms. 

This completed year of education is a REQUIREMENT for entrance into 2nd Grade Religious Ed (year of First Holy Communion).


Teachers Needed!

The St. Francis Religious Education program, through God’s grace and protection, will be welcoming back students on-site in September.

All grade levels. Classes are 1 hr per week in the lower church Mondays – Thursdays.

Do you have a desire to bring God’s teachings to young students? Then think about being a catechist! You don’t have to be a scholar – the Holy Spirit will guide your heart! We will provide you with a curriculum, book, and all the love and support we can give. If you hear the calling to bring God’s message to children, contact the Religious Ed office. We can talk about the program and any questions you may have. Pray for guidance. Our children really need you.

Thank you and God bless,

St. Francis Office of Religious Education

First Holy Communion was celebrated with great love on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at St. Francis!  We had two Masses for our Grade 2 Religious Education students who received Our Lord for the first time surrounded by their loving families, friends, and catechists.
