St. Cassian Parish offers a religious education program for children in grades one through 8. Classes are offered several times during the week. Families are encouraged to select the day and time that works best for their schedules. Attendance at weekly classes is very important.

Registration – Families can register for our Religious Education Program by going to the parish website. The families of our students must be registered member of St. Cassian parish. Information for parish registration is also available on this website or feel free to stop by the parish office.

Sacrament Preparation – Children are prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion during first and second grade. Confirmation is celebrated during the spring of eighth grade. The candidates are prepared during seventh and eighth grades.

Catechists — Our program is staffed by volunteer catechists. Training is offered by the Archdiocese of Newark and our Parish Catechetical Leader. All adult volunteers are required to be certified by the Protecting God’s Children program. Information and registration for that program is found at

Calendar— Our Program runs from late September until April. We try to align our schedule with the local public school calendars. A calendar is distributed to families at the beginning of the year and is also available on the parish website. Any necessary changes to the calendar will be emailed to the families and announced in the parish bulletin.
