Thank you for your interest in the St. Francis Xavier School of Religious Education. All of us at St. Francis Xavier Parish have a special interest in each of our families. It is our hope that you will experience the warmth that is a very special part of our parish. Enclosed you will find the Registration Materials (for: new students / returning students) required for all students enrolled in the SFX Religious Ed Program. Please note that families must be registered parishioners in St. Francis Xavier Parish in order for children to be accepted in our program. It is essential that all information be completed as you register your child for the School of Religious Education. Please be sure to fill in both sides of the Individual Permanent Record / Family Information Form. If your child has not been baptized at St. Francis or made his/her First Communion at our parish, then you need to include copies of these certificates with the registration form. Also, a Medical/Emergency Information sheet needs to be on file for each child. Please indicate on the form in order of preference (1,2,3) the session most convenient for your family calendar/schedule. Sessions and classes are being filled on a first come first serve basis with returning families already having the opportunity to re-register. Therefore, it is important that you return the registration form and tuition as soon as possible. This will allow us to facilitate class sizes, catechist placement, and book/supply ordering. Your registration materials, tuition, and volunteer form can be returned by mail (a self addressed envelope has been included) or drop it off at the rectory or Religious Ed Office. You will be notified by the end of June that your registration has been received. Specific class assignment information will be sent in early September. A Volunteer Sheet is enclosed and also needs to be returned by each family. Your support of this program through your many volunteering efforts is important and greatly appreciated. We will be happy to complete the volunteer form for you to meet our needs, if you do not have a preference of volunteer work or time. Please note that an online background check and attendance at Protecting Godʼs Children Training is mandatory for some areas of volunteering.
Thanking you in advance for your cooperation,
I remain, Sincerely yours,
Terri Simeoni Coordinator of Religious Ed
