Welcome to Children's Religious Education!
Registration is open for all Families for Catechism Year 2018/2019 At St. Joseph the Worker Parish!
We have classes available for Children in Grades 1 to 5. However, we do desperately need someone to volunteer to teach the grade 1 class. Please see Reine Mykyte if you are interested in volunteering. You will have support from the rest of the Catechism team.
Classes will again be held on Sunday Mornings before Mass. There is a Parent retreat on October 13th from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm for all families who have registered. The First Catechism Class will begin on October 21st.
We also have a Youth Group available for those in Grade 6 and up. It will be on Saturday evenings, after Mass.
Registration forms can be found at the back of the Church after all Masses, on the Parish website under Children's Religious Education, or at the office. Please bring completed forms and $25 payment (per child) to the Parish Office. The Catechism Calendar Year Schedule will also be found there when it is available.
