+Feast of St. Catherine of Siena+
Dear Tri-Parish families,
With this letter, you will find the registration materials for the Religious Education Program for the 2015-2016 year. Although the registration form is applicable for all programs, grades 1-12, this letter provides some explanations and information for the children in grades 1-8. If your family has been regularly participating in Religious Education, we welcome you back for the 2015-16 school year! If you’ve been away for awhile, we encourage you to consider making a return, working together with us to pass on the great gift of Faith to your children.
Here are some things to note about the upcoming year:
- Early registrations ($65) tuition are due by May 30. After May 30, tuition is $80.
- There is no charge after the second child, so the total max cost is $130 (by May 30) or $160(after May 30).
- We will continue to offer the Wednesday evening OR Sunday evening options for students in grades 6-8, but have moved the class time up by 30 minutes. In 2015-2016, the class time will be from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
- The elementary, middle school, and high school programs will have coordinated calendars. That means that throughout the year, students across all grade levels will have sessions, or have “off” on the same weeks. We hope this is a convenient adjustment for families!
For children entering grades 1-6, you will also find a flyer with information about our summer Vacation Bible School, scheduled for August 10-14 at the Faith Formation Center. (Older children are welcome to assist as group leaders!) Online registration is now open for VBS! Just go to this website: https://www.groupvbspro.com/vbs/ez/TriParishVBS
For children in middle school and older, we’ve attached information about this summer’s Service Week, a great opportunity for kids to help those right here in our community!
Lastly, as I shared with you last week, I will be moving on from my role as Director of Faith Formation. I am formulating a calendar for next year’s program, but the new director will share the calendar and other program details with you in the fall. Please pray for our Tri-Parish leaders as they interview candidates for this position. I also ask your continued prayers as I enter the counseling field. Know that you will remain in my prayers as well. I have been very blessed to work in this community.
I will be working through the end of May, and assisting until the new director is found, so please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have!
