2016/2017 Religious Education (Catechism)
The new Religious Ed year is almost here. If your child was enrolled last year then there is no need to re-register this year. Our new system is now capable of more advanced features such as saving student and family information, transfering students to the next grade level, sending, receiving and logging email and texts, creating lists, etc.
If you need to make any changes to the information you provided to us last year, please call the office at 852-2673 or email us at the CONTACT Tab above.
Tuition Fees are as follows:
Grades 1st through 5th $10
Grades 6th through 8th $35
Grades 9th and Up $40
Tuition can be paid in installments or all at once at the SJCC Office or by filling out a teal envelope found at the back of each church and dropped into the collection
Since we are now living in a more technological environment, things happen at a faster pace. For this reason, we would like you to provide us with an electronic form of communication, if possible. Please provide us with an often-used email address or cell phone number with carrier company such as Verizon, At&t, etc. which will allow us to keep you informed on very important news from our Religioius Ed program.
Please contact the SJCC Office if you have any questions or concerns and be sure to check out more information on Sacraments from the tabs above.

Have you ever thought about becoming a Catechist? Our churches are always in need of Catechists, Aides, Substitutes and Youth or Young Adult's to volunteer their time to our newest members of our faith. Please call or talk to a priest or deacon about taking a step toward the future of our church. Middle School and High School Youth are strongly encouraged to come forward as Aides for the elementary grades. If you would like more information on helping out with 1st- 5th grade catechism, please contact the SJCC Office at 852-2673. Or, if you would like to donate your time to Middle or High School grades, we ask that you come to a Core Team Training at St. Joseph Church in Monte Vista on Aug. 31st at 6:30pm.
