2022 - 2023 Religious Education Welcome Letter

Registration is Closed!

Please contact Danielle Sibilia at directorreligioused@starcc.com if you need to register

 

Dear Parents,

Thank you again for a wonderful year of Religious Education.  We are so proud of our 124 students who received their First Holy Communion and of the 121 students who were Confirmed this year.  With that in mind we have some exciting news to share with you about this upcoming 2022-2023 academic year.  This year we will be offering Kindergarten Classes for the first time, increasing our Religious Education program offering from Kindergarten thru 8th Grade.   Registration for all classes is open and will close on July 29th, 2022.

As you may have heard the parish will be embarking on a renovation project beginning this fall that will include construction of a new Faith Formation Center building where Religious Education classes will be held. Fr. Rob will be announcing more details about the project to the parish community soon.  

Because there will be disruption on the campus for up to two years, all Religious Education classes will be held at South School on Sunday’s only with the exception of a new program “Choir and Religious Education” – see details on this program below.  If you are an 8th grade student in the Confirmation prep class and it was held on the St. Aloysius campus last year, Marie Osterndorf will reach out to inform you of your new location.

All the South school class time options are below: 

Early Morning Session from 8:45 AM - 9:45 AM

Late Morning Session 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Afternoon Session 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

All these times were purposely configured around our mass schedule.  Those who frequent the 10am Mass can still attend as the commute from South School is only 5 mins driving.

If none of these times work, you do have the option to choose a homeschool track where we will provide you the materials you need to teach your child at home.  Please note 1st and 2nd graders must attend class in person as this is a sacramental preparation year and we do not allow homeschooling.

NEW this year Choir and Religious Education

Religious Education has partnered with the St. Aloysius Music Ministry for an exciting alternative to traditional CCD Class! 

Starting this fall, your child/children will have the option to participate in the St. Aloysius Youth Choir as their Religious Education fulfillment. Both CCD material and Youth Choir material will be covered during each session. This class will be limited to 50 students in Grades 3-6. Details are as follows:

  • CCD/Choir Rehearsal Sunday morning from 8:30-9:45am in Stapleton Hall (required)
  • Youth Choir will sing at one scheduled 10am Mass per month. Dates TBD (required)
  • Youth Choir will sing at special Christmas and Easter Concerts/Masses (required, *exceptions permitted on a case-by-case basis)

Students who register for this class will be required to attend a scheduled “Meet & Greet Audition” prior to the start of classes in order to ensure this class is the right fit! 

This Religious Education alternative is perfect for children who are interested in music or have already participated in musical activities in some capacity. However, all levels are welcome! 

There will be a waitlist, should we exceed 50 signups.

Registration and FAQ’s about the program can be found on the website by clicking here.

Tuition must be paid at the time of registration and paying tuition only does not register your child for classes.  Any outstanding tuition payments must be paid in full prior to your child enrolling this year.  

Thank you for choosing to enroll your child in our program and for your patience and understanding during these next two years of construction.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, but kindly check the website first, because there are very detailed instructions regarding registration and any other questions you might are very likely on the site.
