FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION 2018-2019

2018 – 2019 FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION

 

A short word on discernment for sacramental prep… If your child is to be enrolled in sacramental prep (first reconciliation, first communion and confirmation) it is understood that there will be weekly participation at the weekend mass. If you are not ready or willing to comply with this requisite, your discernment should be not to enroll your child into the sacramental program. Participation in just the catechesis classes will not be considered adequate preparation for the reception of the sacraments. The Church has too many members “in name only”.

We are currently in the process of preparing for next year’s Faith Formation classes.

We can share with you the following information:

–          The first day of registration will be Tuesday, May 1, 2018. Please do not come in before that date. We will be accepting applications all summer until the final date of Aug. 5, 2018.

–          Registration hours will be as follows:

o   From Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 12:00pm in the offices of the Learning Center (the trailers at the back of the parking lot)

o   Monday and Friday from 2:00pm to 5:00pm

o   Thursdays from 5:00pm to 7:00pm

o   WE WILL NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS AT OUTSIDE OF THESE TIMES

–          We will also have two weekends where we will be outside of the church at each mass accepting registrations. These weekends will be:

o   Saturday and Sunday, July 28/29

o   Saturday and Sunday, August 4/5

We would like to have all applications handed in by August 5 at the latest to be able to plan appropriately for the upcoming year.

There will be no online applications and no online copies of the registration.

We regret to inform you that, because of a significant amount of people who have not paid their faith formation fees we will not have a payment plan this year. You will need to pay the total amount in full when you register.

The amount will be the same as in former years: $60/child up to a maximum of $150/family

ST. ANN HOMESCHOOL MINISTRY

St. Ann Church values the dedication and the contributions to parish life of our homeschooling families. In an effort to support our homeschooling families we have events throughout the year that cater to their needs and provide faith filled activities for the children. They include, but are not limited to:

  • FAMILY HOLY HOURS – We meet periodically (about 6 times per year) to worship Christ in the Blessed Sacrament as families with prayer that is geared towards young children. Please check our parish calendar and our Facebook Events for dates.
  • SUMMER VBS – Each year we host an unapolagetically Catholic VBS. Last year (2016) we used the catchat Catholympics VBS and are currently planning for this year’s VBS which will be held during the week of Aug. 7th -11th. We have Holy Mass every day and so much fun. Registration will begin before summer starts. Watch the bulletins and this webpage for more news.
  • ALL SAINTS PARTY – The Saturday closest to the Solemnity of All Saints is reserved for our incredible ALL SAINTS PARTY. Dress as your favorite saint, play games, go fishing, take a cake walk, and acquire so many yummy treats.
  • ARCH HOMESCHOOL GRADUATION – Our parish and parish center is the home to the yearly ARCH homeschool graduation mass and ceremony. Congrats to all our homeschool grads!
  • FAMILY CONFESSIONS AND FAMILY STATIONS OF THE CROSS IN LENT – Every Friday in Lent we have a “Family Stations of the Cross” in the afternoon and also a confession opportunity specifically for families with babysitting.
  • HOMESCHOOL CLASS TIME -We are currently planning the creation of a homeschool co-op on Fridays, as well as other course offerings during the week including Spanish. Contact Patrick Ginty pginty.dre@gmail.com for inquiries.

St. Ann Parish encourages our parents to the first formators of their children in the faith. We understand that many times our parents want to form their children for the sacraments. In order to facilitate this we can help guide you regarding curriculums that are available as well as providing retreats, rehearsals and dates for the sacraments. All families will be expected to meet the minimum requirements set forth by the diocese for reception of the sacraments. Please see the documents below for more information.
