FAMILY FAITH FORMATION*
2022
*formally referred to C.C.D. or religious education

This Fall, Family Faith Formation at St. Aedan’s Parish will occur online through two monthly class meetings on Zoom.  Additionally, once a month students and parents/guardians will attend the 1 PM. Family Mass.  After Mass, the parents/guardians will be gathered in the front of the Church and the students in the back.  Parents/guardians will be provided with a reflection project to be done at home as a family faith exercise in the next month.  The students will review and share lessons covered in their classes over the last month.  The afternoon Family Faith Moment will end with food & fellowship in the vestibule of the Church. 

 

All communication for the program between catechists and families along with the Family Faith Formation leadership team to all members or select classes will take place through the parish communications platform called Flocknote.

Digital communication policy 

 

The Archdiocese of Newark continues to serve the young people of St. Aedan’s: The Saint Peter’s University Church of Jersey City, N.J.

Parish program facilitators will deliver virtual programming and content for its participants, through online platforms. The program(s) will use software, tools, and applications provided by third-parties that participants, parents/legal guardians, volunteers and/or staff will access via the internet and use for purposes of communication, programming, and potential content creation. These platforms may include but are not limited to: Google Classroom, GoToMeeting, Webex, and Zoom.

 

To enroll in any of these programs, you must provide your consent and release for your child to participate in these online applications for distance-based, virtual program purposes. Please be aware that each application collects different information about its users and has its own privacy terms and conditions to which members must adhere and which parish or diocese cannot control or assume responsibility. Please review these carefully before registering your child.

 

Our commitment to keeping the children and youth we serve safe is always our number one priority. To that end, we will actively monitor participant activity of children while engaged in our digital learning platforms. It is parents’ responsibility to monitor their child’s internet usage as a whole, including their use of any internet sites that are outside of our digital learning platforms. All online activities contemplated hereunder must also comply with the Archdiocese of Newark Safe Environment Protocols and must also follow any use requirements developed by the Archdiocese of Newark and/or the Department for the Protection of the Faithful.
