Faith Formation

STC Faith Formation Calendar 2018-2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the newly formed Parish of St. Teresa of Calcutta’s Faith Formation program!

As you know, the Diocese of Trenton, through the Faith in our Future initiative, recommended the merger of Saint Elizabeth of Hungry Church in Avon and Church of the Ascension in Bradley Beach. The merger took effect as of July 1, 2018 and we are now the Parish of St. Teresa of Calcutta. It is an exciting time as we bring both communities together as one, with renewed hope and joy for the amazing opportunities to build our new Parish.

With the merger of our two churches, the Faith Formation Program has grown substantially. The Avon School is not able to accommodate our need for additional classrooms and therefore ALL Faith Formation classes will be held at the Bradley Beach Elementary School, 515 Brinley Avenue, Bradley Beach (right next to the Ascension Worship Site). Classes will be held on Sunday mornings from 8:45am-9:45am starting September 9, 2018.

We are offering two options for registration.
