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. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Matthew J. Burns, Director of Religious Education at (401) 434-4060 ext. 6.

(Vatican Radio) The biggest event of the Asian Catholic Church this year, is taking place in Yogyakarta city, Indonesia, next week. The 7th Asian Youth Day (AYD7) is being hosted by the Archdiocese of Semarang, August 2-6, with over 2000 young people from 21 Asian countries rallying around the theme, “Joyful Asian Youth: Living the Gospel in Multicultural Asia!” The continent-level event has been held in various Asian cities since 1999 in intervals of 2, 3 and 5 years, with the last AYD in Daejeon Diocese in Korea in 2014, in which Pope Francis participated.
Organizers have divided the entire AYD into three events spread across 11 days from July 30 to August 9. On arrival, the participants will head to the 11 of Indonesia’s 37 dioceses who will be hosting them from July 30 to August 2 in what is called Days in the Dioceses (DID). All the participants will then converge in Yogyakarta from August 2 to 6 for the central event of the AYD7. The 5 days will include a variety of activities such as adoration, confession, Mass, reflections, testimonies, workshops, group sharing, country exhibits and cultural performances. After the main event, the Asian Youth Ministers will stay back for a meeting, August 6 to 9.Read More
