Sign Up for Religious Ed Classes

Families can now register for the Religious Education program. Religious Ed classes will be weekly on Sundays from 8:30-9:45am, 15 minutes earlier than in previous years.

Registrations forms will be mailed to families that participated last year, and are also available at the Rectory.  You can also download the registration form and email it to Jim Potthast at

The fee for parishioners with one child enrolled is $125, two children is $175, and three or more children is $195. The non-parishioner fee is $150 for the first child, $195 for two children, and $215 for three or more children.  

There will be a parent meeting and meet and greet on Sunday, August 23 at 8:30am. This is a great opportunity to meet other families and some of the teachers before classes begin for the year. Classes will begin on Sunday, September 9 at 8:30am.  A complete calendar for the 2018-2019 school year listing the class dates, family Masses, and Kids Word dates is available to download here

If you have any questions about these programs, please reach out to our Family Minister, Jim Potthast at
