We are a Gospel-based Catholic community that truly strives through worship, ministry and service to live, grow and be challenged by the message of Jesus Christ. We strive to develop an awareness of God's constant presence among us, while instilling sound Christian morals and values in our children, so that they may develop spiritually for continued success through their lives.

Our goal for your child is to receive a faithful and spiritual education while attending our program. Our Religious Program is an eight year program where students begin in first grade, make their Reconciliation and Communion in 2nd grade, then continue their education and will finish with the Sacrament of Confirmation in 8th grade. Our students start the process of Confirmation in 7th grade. Students will be allowed to register for grades 2-8 if family provides a letter from the child’s former Religious Education Program or Catholic School. It is important to attend class every week, complete assignments, and attend Mass weekly.  

Registration for the 2018-2019 School Year will be from July 9, 2018- August 31, 2018

$50 Registration fee is due by Friday, August 31, 2018 with completed registration forms.

**Note: this registration fee will go toward your tuition fee. For example: You have 1 child and pay $50 registration fee, you will only owe $45 Tuition.**

A $50 Late Registration Fee will be added on to bill if child is registered after August 31, 2018.

(Registration is $100 after August 31, 2018 but only $50 of the fee will go toward tuition).
