Because of the growth of our parish, your child/ren will not be automatically registered for the same time session they have had in the past.  Paid registrations will receive first choice of time, 8:55am or 11:05am, until each session is full.  If you are unable to pay due to a special family circumstance, please call the Religious Education Office for a tuition waiver request form.  All information will be kept in strictest confidence.  No child will be denied a religious education because of inability to pay.
