I want to wish all the mothers in our parish a happy Mother’s Day.
Congratulations to all our First Communion recipients! The banners were wonderful this year. You all did a wonderfully at Mass. I pray that you will continue to receive our Lord in the Eucharist and receive all the blessings that the Body and Blood of Christ will bestow on you each time.
SAVE THE DATE: Our original VBS, Forever Me, will take place June 24th-28th, 2019 at 8:30 am – 12:30pm. Information on signing up online or on paper will be available soon.
Enrollment for Religious Education will begin the weekend of May 18th and 19th after each Mass. We will have registration for R.E. after the 5pm Mass on Saturday May 25th and 8:15am Mass on Sunday May 26th. Due to our parish festival taking place after 11am Mass on May 26th, we will not have anyone at the registration table. There will however, be a box in which to return any forms taken home the week before. Early registration allows us to plan early, and take advantage of sales and sometimes free shipping which occurs early in the spring and summer months (May and June). There is no fee for enrollment until May 31st. On June 1st, we will begin charging a late fee of $15 per child, so get your forms filled out as soon as possible.
Those who wish to enroll their child(ren) for First Sacraments (First Reconciliation and First Communion) class may do so at the registration table. Please let the person at the table know that you need to enroll your child(ren) for First Sacraments, as there are extra requirements that must be met and a letter that the parent’s must sign.
All forms are available on this website under the “Pre-K to 6th Grade Catechesis” tab of the Religious Education page. Just download, print, fill in, sign, and bring back to the DRE for registration.
If your child is second grade or older and not yet baptized, or is baptized but older than second grade and needs to receive their First Sacraments, please see the DRE for enrollment in RCIA for children. Classes take place on Wednesday evenings at 6:30-8:00 pm, August 21st, 2019 to Easter Vigil, April 11th, 2020 (when they will receive may Sacraments).
I hope to see you all soon.
