Children's Religious Education

Jesus with a group of children in modern clothesJesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."  – Matthew 19:14 RSV

Children grow in the fullness of joy when they come to know of God's infinite love for them.  Care for the soul is as important as care for the body – and that's why faith formation and religious education are so important.   

We, St. John the Baptist Parish in combination with Holy Rosary Parish, are privileged to help your children grow in the fullness of joy!  Any and all questions should be directed to our Religious Education Coordinator, Cathy Mazzaglia.  (Her last name rhymes with the flower, azalea.)  She can be contacted at 340-4195  or by email at cpfmazz@Gmail.com. 

Classes are held on Tuesday for grades 1-6 from 4:45 to 5:45 PM. And on Tuesday for grades 7-8 from 6 to 7PM. at the St. John the Baptist Parish Center, Lower Hall (this is our Religious Education Center.)  

Weather announcement: In the event of cancellation due to weather, announcements will be made via WMUR. Look for St. John the Baptist - Suncook or Holy Rosary Parish - Hooksett in the listings

  Question:
Why did God make you? 

  Answer: God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in the next.
