Grades 1st-9th and First Holy Communion
Beginning September 25th
Information will be mailed and emailed to families with additional details
All St. Augustine’s and St. Mary’s religious education programs have been merged into one program which will be headed by the Religious Education Coordinator, Debbie Webster.
Religious Education Classes for Grades 1 – 10 will begin on September 25th, so please get your children’s registrations in as soon as possible, for materials to be ordered.
For the Sacrament of First Holy Communion (Holy Eucharist), a child must be in program for the two years, 1st and 2nd Grade, unless other instruction was approved by Director. For the Sacrament of Confirmation, a young person should be in program for two years, for the 9th and 10th grade. If a situation has prevented this at grade level please contact Mrs. Debbie Webster, the Director/Coordinator of this program.
If a student is attending a Catholic High School for 9th and 10th Grade, they would register in our program in 10th grade, to begin instruction in January. Early registration is important.
**Important for Confirmation: Catholic High Schools DO NOT provide Confirmation Instruction. It is necessary to register with your parish Faith Formation/Religious Education Program. Registration Applications are being emailed to all families registered in the program in 2021 – 2022.
We welcome all new families and they may contact Mrs. Webster for an application to be sent, picked up, emailed or may access from parish websites.
God Bless All with a healthy and enjoyable summer conclusion
Registration Forms for the 2022-2023 Faith Formation program are available here.
