Catechesis at OLBS
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament’s Religious Education Program strives to “foster a living, conscious, active faith community, through the light of instruction.”
Classes are held on Wednesday afternoons from 2:15 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. for Grades 1-5. Grades 6 and 7 are taught on Tuesday evenings from 7:10 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
Registration is held in April. For further information, please contact the Religious Education office at 718-225-6179.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for those who are inquiring about the Catholic faith. This group gathers weekly to reflect on the scriptures, God’s place in their lives, and the teaching and traditions of the Catholic Church. More information about the sacramental preparation of adults can be obtained by calling the Religious Education office.
Adult Faith Formation Team
Faith formation for Christians is a life-long task, and one that we enthusiastically embrace, recognizing that it encompasses different challenges and opportunities as we age and as our circumstances change.
Our team purpose is to use our faith commitment and creativity to plan and initiate a wide spectrum of spiritual and educational offerings so that our adult parishioners can continue to grow in faith and holiness.
We have recently sponsored a Lenten Retreat, Days of Recollection for Advent and Lent, Film/Discussions, Lenten Faith Sharing Groups, Art Shows and more. We are working on Bible-Study Groups, and other ideas.
We welcome your suggestions, participation, and support. Let us know what would help you on your spiritual journey.
