Welcome to a new year of Religious Education. Our program this year looks very different than what we have been accustomed to in past years. Due to our current situation with COVID-19 we will not be having in person faith formation classes. Instead, we are excited to move forward with Bishop Cotta's vision of Family Catechesis. Keeping in mind that parents are the primary educators of their children, a family based Religious Education program gives that privilege back to parents. This way of catechesis will enable your children to continue learning our Catholic faith safely, from home.
Registration will be done online this year. Due to the current situation, we will be asking for all necessary documents (Baptismal certificates, First Communion certificates) and payment to be submitted before your registration is complete and finalized. If your child/children attended our program during the 2019-2020 school year, and you submitted all the necessary documents, you do not have to resubmit them, except for the registration form. All new families or returning families registering a new child will need a copy of the Baptismal certificate. (If you need a new copy of their certificate, please call our parish secretary at 209-524-7421 to obtain one.) Any student who attended the faith formation classes in another parish last year would need to submit all nesessary documents plus a letter of transfer from that parish.
We look forward to new beginnings and a new year of Religious Education!
