Religious Education Registration

Dear Parents;

I would like to welcome you to the Saint Joseph, Sylvania Parish Religious Education Program.  We refer to our program as Inspired Catholic Education.  We are very committed to offering our families a variety of high quality programs that meet parish Religious Education requirements while recognizing the busy schedules that permeate family life.  We do require that every child in grades one through eight receive formal Religious Education instruction.  This ongoing process will insure a solid understanding of the faith.  In addition, we require a 75% attendance record for the program of your choice.  Please choose the program that provides the best chance for meeting the attendance requirement.

We cannot offer the quality and variety of programs that we do without volunteer support.  We do ask that all of our parents volunteer in some capacity for our programs.  Please prayerfully discern the best way that you can volunteer for our programming.   While all of our volunteers are crucial to programming we most heavily depend on teachers for our classes.  If you believe that you may have the gifts for this ministry, please contact us so that we can discuss this possibility.  We offer training and ongoing support so that you can truly make a difference in the life of a child!

If you have a child preparing for First Reconciliation/Communion or Confirmation please follow the links below to print out hard copies of these registration forms that will need to be returned to our office:

Confirmation: https://www.stjoesylvania.org/media/1/6/Confirmation%20Reg%20pdf%202019-2020.pdf

First Reconciliation/Communion:  https://www.stjoesylvania.org/media/1/6/FC%20Reg%20pdf%204-19.pdf

We also ask that you meet the registration deadline so that we can be well prepared for your child when they begin on day one.  Text book orders and other supplies must be purchased well before the first day of class.  The registration deadline for Summer program is May 10, 2019.  All additional programs have a registration deadline of August 1, 2019.  If you find that you have missed a registration deadline please call the office and we will assist you with the best way to proceed.

We look forward to partnering with you in the religious formation of your child!
