Religious Education


St. Bernadette's Religious Education program begins in the first grade and continues through the eighth grade. Children are prepared for the reception of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation during that time.

Given the current guidelines from the Diocese and the State of New Jersey, we have made some changes to the format of our religious education classes for the 2020-2021 year. 

They are as follows:
⸭Grades 1st- 6th: All registered CCD students will be assigned a teacher and given a workbook for home instruction.  Lessons will be done at home with workbooks being turned in periodically.
⸭Grades 7th and 8th: All registered CCD students will have weekly Zoom meetings with their assigned class and teacher. 
⸭Books for all classes were given out on September 19th
⸭Parents will be contacted for specific book drop and pickup times.

If you have not registered for CCD yet, please do so ASAP. If your child will be entering first grade in September 2020, please email Mrs. Francis, our CCD Director, at [email protected] or call 732-727-4038. Registrations are by appointment only.  At the time of registration you must present a baptismal certificate and you must be currently registered in St. Bernadette Parish.  The fee for one student is $75 payable on registration.
