Rites of Passage

"Interfaith marriage has absolutely expanded my horizons. As a Jew, I also would not have taken the time to learn so much about Catholicism and the New Testament. Most of all, if I had been sending my child to a regular temple, I would not have become a Bat Mitzvah together with my daughter this past June."
– Carolyn, Parent

Families make their own decisions about religious activities in their lives. The Family School encourages those who wish to participate in Baptism and First Holy Communion to join together with other families to prepare their children for these sacraments and celebrate them together. While families whose children are preparing for Bar or Bat Mitzvah do this on an individual basis, the school provides supportive resources.
