It is the policy of the Diocese of Metuchen, Office of Religious Education, that in the ideal situation, each child be catechized in the parish in which the family is registered.
When situations arise where a transfer of a student is necessary, the family must be released from the original parish (by the pastor) and accepted into the receiving parish (by the pastor). This transfer must be done in writing from previous parish indicating child’s attendance record and overall participation in that program.
