Religious Education Registration for the 2020 – 2021 School Year is now available.
Due to the new challenges presented because of the COVID pandemic, please note the following:
- The registration fee for Religious Education (K – 8) will remain at $100.00, all children inclusive. There will be no increase as in previous years.
- For the past few years, we have had online Religious Education for those who choose to homeschool. If this is what you choose to do, please go ahead and register accordingly.
- We are currently waiting instruction from the Diocese as to how to handle in-person classes, especially since we will be using St. John the Apostle School. Measures to ensure safety at the School would be the same for those participating in Religious Education.
- In-person classes depend on volunteers. As you can imagine, a number of teachers have had to step down. We are unable to guarantee in-person classes without an adequate group of volunteers. Please consider serving as a catechist, an aide, or substitute.
We will update everyone via Facebook, MyParishApp, the bulletin, and the website. Thanks for your patience and cooperation.
Pay after registration!

Homeschool: Students in the following grade levels have the option of home instruction via an online program using the same textbook series (Faith & Life) that we use: 1st, 3rd – 8th grade. Online access is provided by MyCatholicFaithDelivered.com. There will be no option for online instruction for students in second grade or those preparing for the sacraments (i.e. Baptism, First Penance, First Communion). Any other specific questions about
homeschooling should be directed to the DRE, John Domingo.
Children of Light Ministry: A ministry to students with special needs (physical, emotional, intellectual) and their families. We meet with parents and students to determine the best preparation for their religious instruction. For information, please contact John Domingo.
