Faith Formation Forms

Registration is Underway

St. John the Evangelist’s Religious Education program serves our parish youth (nearly 1,800 students), beginning in first grade, and their families as they grow in faith and prepare for the Sacraments. Registration for the 2017-2018 academic year will begin in June this year. Those who are entering grade 1, as well as those with children who may not have been in religious education for awhile, are welcome to register this June. For families already in our program, you will be notified about your child’s class placement via email and through a mailing over the summer. To register in our Faith Formation program, please bring a copy of the child’s baptismal certificate (or a copy of their birth certificate if they were not baptized). Please also be sure that you are a registered member with our parish. If you aren’t already, please contact the rectory at 631.878.0009.

First Holy Communion

For children: We have begun celebrating our 1st communions this spring. We look forward to the rest of our first communions, which are scheduled from now through June. If you have any questions regarding your child’s first communion rehearsal or mass date, please contact the office.

For adults: Do you want to be baptized? Do you want to become a member of the Catholic Church? What are you waiting for? What about you or someone you know? We are in the process of forming a new group of those interested in becoming Catholic. If you are not baptized or were baptized in another Christian faith, please contact Fr. John Sureau or Suzan Fitzpatrick to be part of our next group of inquirers (those who are interested in learning more about the Catholic Church). You can reach us at 631.878.0009 or via email to or

Help Wanted: Can You Give Back?

Are you looking for a way to serve our community? We are always looking for parishioners to help teach our young people about the faith. You don’t have to be a theologian — simply have a desire to share the faith and be willing to relate it to our youth. Can’t make a weekly commitment? Perhaps you can be a part of our substitute catechist group! If you are interested, please contact us at 631.878.4141 or via email at
