Religious Education Update

  • Religious Education Registration forms for the school year 2020-2021 are now available for registered parishioners. June 30 is fast approaching! If you have not already done so, please return your child’s completed Religious Education Registration form for the 2020 – 2021 school year, whether or not you are able to send in payment at this time.  Late fees will not be assessed until August 15, but it is very helpful to have a list of registered students for planning purposes. The forms have been emailed to families with children who are continuing students in grades 2 – 10, and sent via postal mail to families who are new to the religious education program with children who are potential first graders. If you would like to receive a registration form via postal mail instead of email, please contact Teresa Lovejoy, and I will be glad to send you one!

    If you have a child who will be entering First Grade and have not received a registration form, or if you are new to our parish and interested in religious education in any grade, contact Teresa Lovejoy for information: Religious.ed@ourladyofhopeparish.com, (860) 806-5347. I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Book Returns: If your child was a student in Grade 1 – 5 during the 2019 -2020 school year, please return your child’s text book (Faith and Life series) to the book collection bins in either church (the churches are opened daily from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) or at the parish office (60 Town Hill Road) along with your completed registration form for next year (if not already registered) or a note with your name on it paper-clipped to the book.  We need these books for next year's students.  Thank you. 

  •  First Reconciliation: 1) When visiting either church, please take a moment to notice the display of “sheep.” These represent the 26 children (13 at each church) receiving First Reconciliation this spring or summer.  Please pray for these children and their families as they prepare for (or have taken) this important step on their spiritual journey. 2) Parents of Second Grader:   Check your email for an important announcement from Teresa Lovejoy sent on June 23. 

  • Confirmation Class (9th Graders): Please mail your paper work, if you have not already done so, to Religious Education Coordinator, OLOH Parish, P.O. Box 285, New Hartford, CT 06057. This includes Sacramental Data form, sponsor form (if necessary), Pathway to Discipleship, and, if you’ve completed your service hours, the Works of Mercy Service Reflection. (Obviously, most forms of service have been suspended for the time being, so it’s fine to do this over the summer or even in the early fall.)  And please check your email for a fun, socially distanced, service opportunity!
  • Parish Website Slideshows:  Check out the slide shows in the “Family Faith” section under the Religious Education tab on our parish website!

    Call for pictures! Please send family photos for the parish website depicting creative ways your family is practicing social distancing while still practicing their faith and/or just staying healthy and positive.  Send in pictures of your family gardening, fishing, swimming, and other ways of enjoying God's creation.  

    Send photos to Religious.ed@ourladyofhopeparish.com.

Call/text Teresa Lovejoy for any questions: 860-806-5347 or email Religious.ed@OurLadyofHopeParish.com.

Online Giving Message

We are proud to announce that Our Lady of Hope is keeping up with technology, and now has the ability for online giving.  Contributions can be made to the parish online safety via an encrypted website.  Online giving makes it easy when you are unable to attend Mass.  It's real simple to do.  Here are two simple ways:

     1.  Sign up here at the website.  Click on the "online giving" button that is found on the home page.  For the first time user, just click on "create new account".  This is a one-time account set-up.  This allows you to make donations to the church with options as a one-time gift or recurring.

     2.  The second way for accessing online giving is from your phones. Simply download the app for free from Apple or Google stores.  The name of the app is "Online Giving by Our Sunday Visitor".  From there it's the same login process as the website.
