New COVID guidelines from the Archdiocese: Masks will be mandated for all participants in indoor Faith Formation programming under 18 years old.

(9/30 Update): Due to a lack of children and catechists at Holy Redeemer Parish, preK-8th Grade Faith Formation for both parishes will be offered at Immaculate Conception Parish Hall ONLY at this time. If we get more registrations and catechists, we will reopen Nativity Church Hall in Merrimac for Sunday sessions. Tuesday Evening Confirmation Prep will still happen at Nativity Hall.

Forms and check (made payable to "Holy Redeemer Parish") can be brought in to the Pastoral Center in Newburyport during office hours, Mon. - Fri. 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM
