Religious Ed Program

The mission of the Religious Education Program of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish is to assist parents in the religious, moral, and spiritual formation of their children. Parents are the primary educators of their children, teaching by word and example. Our parish catechists support the parents and the students by providing quality religious education in a nurturing faithfilled enviroment. Through the cooperative effort of parents, catechists, and students, our children will grow in their love for God and knowledge of their Catholic faith. They will develop their God-given gifts and talents, and live as contributing, respectable citizens through their commitment to service as Catholic Christians, along with other acts of kindness projects.


Virtual Learning 

All monthly lesson plans will be available online on the first Sunday of every month. If you opted for your child to receive physical copies of their work, all copies will be available in the rectory on the first Monday of every month. All lesson plans will have due dates for work submission. Work can be submitted by email or by drop off to the rectory. The rectory hours are Monday-Friday from 9am to 2pm. For all questions regarding Virtual Learning, please contact Catherina Cassiliano at (718)236-8300.

All lesson plans will be seperated by grade.


Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (often abbreviated RCIA) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic way of life. This communal process involves a number of stages punctuated by liturgical rites to aid and assist the promotional convert towards the final rite on the day of Easter Vigil at which time they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church.
