Welcome to Religious Education!

August 20, 2015

Dear Families,

Welcome back to a new year of Religious Education at the Mountain 4 Parishes. The religious education programs at St. Joseph and St. Ann will begin this year together on Sunday, September 13th at 6pm with a “learning Mass” at St. Joseph led by Fr. Ed. Following the Mass, there will be a group picture and a meet-n-greet in St. Joseph Church. We will also discuss registration, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparation, tuition and related issues.

Under the Religious Education Forms Tab you will find:
1. Registration Form for Religious Education (St. Joseph and St. Ann)
2. Registration* Form for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (All Mountain 4 Parishes)
*Sacramental preparation takes place at St. Joseph and it’s on the Calendar

Under the Calendar Tab you will find:
Calendar* for Religious Education and Sacramental Preparation at St. Joseph
* Note new meeting days and times for Religious Education at St. Joseph

Please return the registration forms promptly so we can ready the class materials and the catechists. You can mail it, scan and email it, put it in the collection basket at Mass in an envelope marked “Religious Education Registration.”

Tuition for religious education is $45 and $10 for each sibling (two children will cost 55$ and three children will cost 65$, etc.) For sacramental preparation, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, we ask a fee of 35$ in addition to religious education tuition. This sacramental fee includes both preparation programs. Please include tuition and the sacramental fee with your registration form (s). If these fees are prohibitive to your child’s religious education or sacramental preparation please contact me to secure a waiver.

Feel free to contact me or call the parish office with questions, 301-689-6767.

God bless you.

Joe Keating
Director of Religious Education
