Biagianti looks to unite families in Keyport as parish catechetical leader

An understanding of Church is one that will no doubt be helpful as Anne Biagianti begins her role as parish catechetical leader in St. Joseph Parish, Keyport.

“I’ve always stressed we are the Church – the Church isn’t a building. It’s all of us together,” she offered.

Biagianti has served in religious education in Jesus the Lord Parish, Keyport, for the past 11 years. She takes on the PCL role in St. Joseph Parish as part of Faith in Our Future, which calls for both Keyport parishes to merge no later than July 1, 2018. 

The religious education programs will serve about 150 students in St. Joseph Parish and almost 80 students in Jesus the Lord Parish.

While Biagianti will oversee the programs at both parishes, they will be offered on separate days in different locations – Jesus the Lord in Keyport Central School and St. Joseph in the parish center.

This year the Confirmation classes will be combined, and the students of both parishes will be confirmed together. The second-grade students who will receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist will remain separate this year.

Despite the changes and challenges, Biagianti is excited to begin the new year with both parish families.

“I am looking forward to meeting the new families and working with the families of both parishes,” she said. “I want to show them that we are like a patchwork quilt. All of our patches are different, and just like those patches, we all bring different backgrounds to the program. But when the patches are joined together, we make this beautiful quilt.”
