Registration for 2016/17 School Year

Registration Forms for the 2016/17 Religious Education school year.
We ask that you please return them to the Parish Center as soon as possible to guarantee that you will be placed on the day that you have chosen.

For families new to our Parish, please read our Welcome Letter
We look forward to having you in our parish program. In order to register your child in our program, we ask that you complete the Registration Form and bring it in to the Parish Center Office.

The Registration form has 2 pages:
Family Information page: which includes our registration fees
Student Information page: please provide information for each student (K-8)
Select a day and time when the student will attend class.
Students in Grades 1-8 have a choice of either: Sunday 9-10:15am or Tuesday 3:45-5pm.
Kindergarten will only meet on Sunday mornings
Please provide a copy of your child’s Baptism Certificate, 1st Communion & 1st Penance (if  applicable)

If your child attended religious education in another parish, please ask the parish that they attended for a Transfer Letter, so that we can properly place them in the correct grade level.

Religious Education begins in Grade 1 and continues through Grade 8.  Students who are suitably prepared will directly prepare and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in Grade 9.  Students who have gaps in their religious education will need to do make-up work either during the summer or during the school year.

Preparation for First Penance and First Holy Communion is a 2 year program that begins in Grade 1.  If your child has not completed Grade 1 religious education in our parish or another parish and will be entering Grade 2 in the fall of 2016, they will need to do a make-up class at home with you over the summer.  If there is not adequate time to do the make-up work before classes begin in September, the child will enter into Grade 2 and receive the Sacraments of First Penance and First Holy Communion in the spring of their 3rd Grade school year.
