  • Mission Statement

    Through the collaborative effort of the entire church community, we the teachers, staff, and parents of the St. Mary's Religious Education Program will strive to faithfully proclaim and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We will teach our children about the person and mission of Jesus, thereby inspiring and motivating them to form a deeper relationship with God under the guidance of the Roman Catholic Church.

    Through this effort and by constant prayer, we hope that our children will grow into mature Christians who consciously and actively strive to become more like Jesus in every way.  In doing so, they will affirm their supreme dignity as children of God and recognize their mission along with the entire Christian community to celebrate the Good News by evangelizing, catechizing, and ministering to all succeeding generations to build up the Kingdom of God.


    Registration Forms










    First Communion





FULL PAYMENT DISCOUNT:  You may subtract $10.00 per child from your tuition for payments made in full by cash or check.
No students will be able to register for sacramental preparation classes (2nd grade and 9th grade) after the 3rd meeting of regular class sessions except if they have just moved into the area or have just registered with the parish. This policy allows for people who move into the area after the RE year has begun, yet maintains the integrity of catechesis in preparation for the meaningful reception of the sacrament.

Tuition Guidelines
The St. Mary Religious Education tuition is part of the stewardship vision of Time, Talent, and Treasure.  For what does my tuition pay?  It represents the cost of textbooks and supplies, catechist manuals, materials, building operation and maintenance, communication costs, family and special programs, curriculum development, and general office operation.

Tuition rates and payment options are determined by our Parish Finance Council so that we can continue to operate as a financially responsible faith formation program.

Service Agreement
The success of our Religious Education ministry greatly depends on our parent volunteers.  Service opportunities such as: religion teacher, aide, office help, kitchen help, Vacation Bible School, etc. are available.  Please consider these opportunities when assessing your stewardship to our church.
