Dear Parents,

Please pick up your child’s Progress Report as well as certificates of First Communion and Confirmation which are available in the Religious Education Office from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM on Monday through Friday.  Photo packets that you ordered, taken at Confirmation and First Holy Communion, are waiting to be picked up.  You paid $12 for each packet which includes one (1) DVD and two (2) photos.  Additional photos can be purchased for $2.00 each.  When the photographer picks up the remaining photo packets, parents will have to make arrangements to pick them up at his convenience and location.

Masks required before entering the building. 

Children must remain outside the registration office.

Thank you for your cooperation.
