JoAnn Tier, Superintendent of Catholic Schools
The Department of Catholic Schools serves as a liaison to all parish and diocesan schools ensuring the opportunity for a 21st century education rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Department of Catechesis assists the bishop in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the diocese through evangelization, catechesis, and faith formation programs for children, youth, and adults.
The ministry of Catechesis promotes knowledge of the faith, liturgical education, moral formation, education in prayer, education for community life and missionary initiation in the church through its catechetical ministry in parish religious education programs, Catholic schools, and training and formation of Catechetical Leaders.
Whether you are seeking Baptism in the Catholic Church, or entrance into the Church from another Christian tradition, the RCIA helps you respond more deeply to the movement of God in your life and prepares you to take your place in the Catholic community. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is designed to form disciples of Jesus into the fullness of Christian Life.
Through the Scholarship Fund, those who currently work (salaried or volunteer) in a parish will be supported financially in their efforts to attain postgraduate degrees in Theology or Religious Education, or practical certificates in undergraduate and graduate certificate programs, such as for Parish Business Administrators.
The Holy Innocents Society is a Diocesan Society consisting of a federation of the six Centers in the Diocese of Trenton.
Holy Innocents Centers throughout the Diocese provide those persons age seven or above with intellectual, cognitive and/or developmental disabilities, with religious education geared to their individual learning ability.
