I hope you and your family are well. I am happy to say, through prayer and patience, Religious Education will begin in September. Due to Covid concerns, our model has changed to a family home-based program, which will help the family convey and pass on the truths of the faith to their children. We are asking you to be prompt in registering your family for this year’s Faith Formation, please register by September 30th. To better understand how this program works, you will be required to attend an orientation meeting on Wednesday, September 9th, 16th or 23rd at 7pm in the Parish Center. At this time, you will receive and be instructed on the course material. Once registration is complete, you will be sent a link to sign up for the orientation date you would prefer. As expected, we will be complying with all recommendations and requirements regarding Covid.
Following orientation, we will have a Family Formation gathering every Wednesday evening at 7pm starting September 30th. Based on registration numbers, we will have selected families assigned to one Wednesday a month. Those children who are signed up for our Religious Education program are encouraged to attend with a parent. Any families who have a child(ren) receiving their First Holy Communion will receive separate instructions at a later date.
Again, please register online https://stjoefullerton.org/formation/religious-ed by September 30th. Thank you for your cooperation during these trying times. I look forward to working with you and your family in rediscovering our faith not only as a family community but also as a church community!
*Online registration is now CLOSED. If you are interested in registering your child, please contact Erica Stemski for a registration form*
