If you are enrolling a child for the first time, you must make an appointment to come into the office and fill out the forms. Please bring a copy of your child's Baptismal certificate with you. For more information or to register, please call Connie at the Parish Office at 281-2297.

Registration fees are:
1 child - $20, 2 children - $30, 3 children - $35, 4 or more children - $40

What does THAT mean? Some folks have never heard of Jesus; or having heard of him do not know much about him; or knowing about him have never really encountered him; or having encountered him, would like to know more about his Church. They may be unbaptized or baptized. They may even be Catholic but have never made First Holy Communion and been confirmed. You or someone you know may be among these people.

This is an open invitation to come and bring a friend or relative to "Come and see." In these troubled times, Jesus invites you, "Come follow me. I will give you peace." After our times of being together in August, may you discern your next step in an exciting journey!
