Dear Parents,

This 2018 – 2019 school year we will be changing our registration process for Faith Formation at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish. Instead of coming in to register, all families need to do is fill out the registration form on the right side of the screen and pay the fees, all online.

All children who are returning to Faith Formation in the fall or who are attending for the first time need to register. Any baptized Catholic in first through 10th grade, who is not attending a Catholic School, is strongly encouraged to attend Faith Formation. All those preparing to receive a sacrament for the first time, including those in Catholic School, also need to attend Faith Formation. Children and their parents must be registered parishioners of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email me at SacredHeartMike@gmail.com.

God Bless,

Michael Denz, Director of Evangelization & Catechesis
