2018 - 2019 Registration Information:

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Francisca Montoya, I will be the Coordinator for Religious Education this coming school year.  I have been a Catechist here at OLH for the past 3 years, and I have enjoyed it very much, and I am very happy to have been selected for this position.

Enclosed is the 2018-2019 Registration Form for your family.  I hope you will take time to fill it out and return it next week.  The Tuition is appreciated at this time.  The $25 Book Fee per Child, and the $50.00 Sacrament Fee for each Child, who will be receiving a Sacrament in the 2018-2019 School Year, must accompany the Registration Form.  Please note that if you pay the Tuition in Full at the time of Registration, $10 will be deducted from your balance.  In addition, if you register on or before August 15th, you will save $25 on Tuition.  We accept cash or checks.  Make checks payable to “OLH RE”.

Sacrament Forms are included in this packet for those children who have attended one year of Religious Education Classes, and are at least in 2nd Grade for First Communion, and 8th Grade for Confirmation.  A $50 Sacrament Preparation Fee must accompany the Sacrament Registration Form at the time of Registration.

Please consider bringing all of your child(ren) for Religious Education Classes, even if they are not preparing for a Sacrament.  The Church has so much to teach the children on every Level Pre-K through 8th Grade.

The Religious Education Program offers Religious Education Classes for High School Students preparing for the Sacraments.  If you would like Sacrament Preparation for a High School Student, please use the regular Registration Form.  Like the Grade School Program, preparation for the Sacraments is two years.  Our Parish also has a High School Group that meets on Sunday evenings called Christ First.

If you have any questions, please call the Religious Education Office at (847) 746-3744.  I look forward to working with your family this coming School Year.
