Registration for 2013-14

Registration for the 2013-14 Religious Education School Year will begin in June. Registration forms will be mailed to all families who were a part of our program for 2012-13. If you are new to the parish or program, please email Anthony Armando ( for information and registration forms.

Religious Education classes will begin in September 2013. Families have the option of choosing between classes on Sundays 9-10:15am or Tuesdays 3:45-5:00pm.  We also have a program for Kindergarteners on Sundays.

Children should be enrolled in Religious Education classes beginning in Grade 1, in order to receive First Holy Communion in Grade 2, and should continue each year through Grade 8. Students will then prepare directly for Confirmation in Grade 9.

Congratulations to our Confirmandi

On Sunday, May 19, 2013 at the 12 Noon Mass, our parish family celebrated the feast of Pentecost and the Confirmation of 73 of our young people. Bishop McDonnell presided over the Mass and spoke to the candidates about what it means to receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. We ask your prayers for our young people who have been called by God and blessed with the gifts of Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Courage, Right Judgement, Reverence, and Wonder and Awe. They are a vital part of our parish family and we look forward to them being present and active in our Church.

1st Holy Communion

On behalf of our Pastor, Fr. Ernest Rush, Bishop McDonnell, Fr. Tom, and Fr. Trinidad, I would like to extend a congratulations to all of our children who received their First Holy Communion this year.  69 children received the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist for the first time during the past three weeks.  We look forward to seeing them with us at the celebration of Mass each week.
A special "thank you" also goes out to the catechists and parents who helped to prepare them for this important sacrament.
