Religious Education Registration

 

Dear Parents;

We welcome you to our Religious Education program offerings. We refer to our programs as I.C.E. which stands for Inspired Catholic Education. We are committed to offering every family in the parish a variety of high quality programs in order to meet the parish Religious Education requirement. We do require that every child in grades one through eight receive formal Religious Education instruction. This ongoing process will insure a solid understanding of the faith.

We cannot offer the quality and variety of programs that we do without volunteer support. We do ask that all of our parents volunteer in some capacity for our programs. Please prayerfully discern the best way that you can volunteer for our programming. While all of our volunteers are crucial to programming we most heavily depend on teachers for our classes. If you believe that you may have the gifts for this ministry, please contact us so that we can discuss the possibility. We offer training and ongoing support so that you can truly make a difference in the life of a child!

We also ask that you meet the registration deadlines so that we can be well prepared for your child when they begin on day one. Text book orders and other supplies must be purchased well before the first day of class. The deadline for our Summer I.C.E. registration is May 10th. The registration deadline for the Fall I.C.E., Primary I.C.E., RCIC/Sacramental Catchup and the TCC program is August 10th. If you find that you have missed the registration deadlines for the program of your choice please call the office and we will assist you with the best way to proceed.

We look forward to partnering with you in the religious formation of your child!
