Religious Education Registration 2020-2021

Religious Education Registration is now open for the 2020-2021 school year.  Tuition prices are $80 for one student, $150 for two students in the same family, and $210 for three or more students in the same family.  $20 down payment due at registration; payment plans are possible. Use the links below to register via Faith Direct (no account required; full payment required at registration) or print a registration form to bring to the rectory with payment.

We are excited that your child will join us for our faith formation classes on Wednesday evenings from either 5-6:15pm (for grades K-6) and 6:45-8pm (for grades 1-high school) from September to May.  The 2020 start date will be announced late summer 2020. The complete calendar will be mailed in August.

Regular preparation for First Communion is in first and second grades. Regular preparation for Confirmation is in seventh and eighth grades. Students should attend religious education classes every year to avoid falling behind.

Students who have not been enrolled in religious education classes previously or who have missed a few years are welcome in our program! We determine the best class placement for all of our students. In cases where older students are preparing for reception of First Communion, multi-age classes may be established.

Do you have a question about which child your class should be in? Worried they have missed too many years? Does your school-aged child need to be baptized? Contact us at 703-525-1300 x 28 and discuss your child’s situation with us.

Note that only one Registration Form needs to be filled out per family. Via Faith Direct, fill out the family information and then the information for each child. For the printed form, family information is entered on the front of the form, and student(s) information is entered on the back.

Please be sure to fill in all the student information, specifically grade in public school for 2020-2021 and the dates of any sacraments received. If your child has any allergies or specific learning needs, please briefly indicate that on the registration form and we will contact you for additional information, if needed. If you are interested in volunteering please fill in that section of the form.

The registration period begins on Friday June 12, 2020. Regular tuition is $80 for one child, $150 for two children, and $210 for three or more children from the same family enrolled in our program. 

Tuition may be paid in installments. We understand this is a tough time for our families. If you need tuition assistance please contact the Religious Ed. office.
