Religious Education SIGN-UPS/Registration

ATTENTION: Registration Forms can be dropped off through the mail-slot at the front door of the rectory or in the collection basket at Mass. Parents/Guardians may find this useful if there is a time conflict with our office hours and your work schedule.

Registration for students in grades 1-9 IS ONGOING UNTIL SEPT 11th. Parents and guardians are reminded that students are required to register each year even if previously enrolled. Early registration helps us to figure out the number of books to order. Registration forms are available in the front hallway of church as well as the parish office. Registrations will only be accepted until September 18th. Classes begin on Sunday, September 11th which means that parents/students running late with registration have a one week grace period. OUT OF FAIRNESS TO OUR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, REGISTRATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER SEPTEMBER 18TH.  Parents/guardians are also reminded that they should also be registered with the parish if they have a child in our program. Parish registration can also be done during the week, Mon.-Thurs. during our regular office hours.
