We look forward to sharing the faith with your child in the 2019-2020 school year! Our program continues to offer faithful catechesis to all our children with regular practice in the sacraments and traditions of our Church.

To register your child, please be sure to read this notice carefully.
Our program meets once a week throughout the academic year in St. Paul’s School building at 250 James Street. Parents can select either Monday evenings (6-7:15 pm) or Wednesday evenings (5:45-7:00 pm). Kindergarten is offered on Mondays only. Classes are scheduled to begin Monday, September 23rd or Wednesday, September 25th and will end the last week of April (barring the need for makeup classes due to emergency closings for weather). Families are expected to attend weekly Mass and students are expected to be present in class every week. Missing lessons will make it increasingly difficult to stay on track with lessons and assignments. Be sure to plan ahead with sports and activity schedules so your children can attend classes.

Please download the forms and complete. You may send in or drop off the forms with payment and any additional documents (Baptismal certificates) to the Religious Education Office at 250 James Street in Burlington or the Rectory at 223 E. Union Street in Burlington.

Tuition

Our tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is as follows:

Beginning July 15th:  One child $125     Two Children $205   3+ Children $250

Before July 14th:         One child $100     Two children $180    3+ children $205

If the tuition fee is truly a financial hardship for your family, there are other ways you can support the program, including being a catechist, a teacher’s aide or a monitor.

 

Volunteers are needed! In an effort to keep our class sizes small and intimate, we are in need of catechists (teachers), aides, hall monitors, and substitutes. Registration fees for catechists/assistants are either waived or discounted. Anyone who is willing to share their faith with our students is welcome to be a volunteer. Confirmation candidates and Honor Society students could earn their required service hours as aides, monitors, etc. We would also like to have a teacher’s aide in every classroom to ensure that our students stay focused and get the personal attention they may need. Please prayerfully consider supporting our program in this way. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn more about your faith. No teaching
experience is necessary and training can take place over the summer months.
For the safety of our children, all volunteers are required to pass a criminal background check and attend a Virtus/Safe Environment session before they begin volunteering. Please contact the Religious Education office for details.

 

Bulletin Announcements: Be sure to keep an eye on the parish bulletin for announcements of upcoming events relating to the program. The bulletin is also available on the parish website: https://www.StKatharineDrexel-nj.org


God Bless you and may this new academic year bring many blessings in your child’s faith journey!
In faith,
