Catechism Registration takes place in the Spring but there are some spots still available. It is always 1st come, 1st serve cash only.
In Spring, the Catechists will hand out a Certificate of completion for the child, a new registration form, and a letter of Registration times.. To register your child for the next level, you must bring along the Certificate, filled out Registration form, and a letter from the church secretary , if you are eligible for any discounts.
For families who plan a vacation, they are expected to see Fr. Yolly 1 month ahead. The Church Secretary will then issue a letter for you to give to the Catechist. The Catechist will then prepare the homework list for the classes the student will miss.
CWL –August Rosary Intention:
Please pray one decade of the rosary for all our brothers and Fr. Yolly to have a happy and healthy summer.
May God watch over everyone.

As recommended by the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, we use the FINDING GOD Catechism Program. Catechism consists of 8 Levels. The children are registered for Level 1 when they are entering Grade 1 in school.
Level 2 consists of preparation of 2 Sacraments: Reconciliation (Confession); and Eucharist (First Communion). First Communion is usually celebrated in May.
Levels 3 – 8 consist of a different focus for each level, such as The Old Testament, Sacraments, Church History, etc.
After completion of Level 8, the students return in January of the following year to begin Confirmation preparation. If the student feels he/she is ready, Confirmation usually takes place in May with Archbishop Richard Gagnon presiding.
For children over the age of 7, there is a Special Class, similar to Level 2, to prepare them for Reconciliation and Eucharist. The next year the students return and go on to complete Level 3 – 8.
For children who have their Eucharist and Reconciliation but no other Catechism, we offer a 2 year TEEN class . After completion of the TEEN class, students will come back for Confirmation preparation.
Saturday 9:30 – 10:40 AM
Sunday 11AM – 12:10PM
Tuesday 7:00 – 8:10PM
Cost per child is $70, CASH ONLY. Discounts are available. If the Parent is a registered parishioner, the cost is $60/child
If the Parishioner is an envelope user, the cost is $55/child. The parish will issue a tax receipt in March.
**To obtain a discount for Registration or Envelope User, a letter MUST be obtained from the church secretary and presented to Catechism Coordinator at time of registration.
If there are more than 2 children in the family, the cost for the third child is $25.
Since Parents are the First Catechists we need the support of the parents to ensure the children have completed all homework, know their prayers, and attend every class.
For parishioners who are over the age of 18 and have been Confirmed, please consider becoming a Catechist. We always need new Catechists and Subs, especially since our Program is growing. The Coordinator and fellow Catechists will help you. You can start by shadowing. Please contact Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org . There are applications available in Church foyer, fill out, seal in envelope, and place in Collection basket, addressed to CATECHISM COORDINATOR.
We still need a Level 1 Catechist for Sunday and a Level 2 Catechist for Sunday.
