Penance

Experiencing the Healing Love of Christ

All parish children who are entering first grade should be enrolled in the St. Joseph Religious Education primary school program, designed for students from first to fifth grades. Classes are held on two different days -- Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. -- from September to May. Sign up for either the Tuesday or Wednesday class by contacting the St. Joseph Religious Education Office.

There are also special classes in the fall and spring that take place for six weeks on Sunday mornings, immediately preceding reception of each sacrament: October-November for First Penance, March-April for First Eucharist. Mrs. Angela Mantero, Family Life Director for the Diocese of Bridgeport and also a parishioner of St. Joseph's, directs this special catechetical and liturgical program that prepares our seven-year-olds for these beautiful sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Communion!
