Registration for high school Faith Formation options begins by attending a Religious Education Registration Meeting. This registration process allows the religious education department to make appropriate plans for the number of participants, budgets and facilities. It also is an annual opportunity to communicate face-to-face with parents. All high school youth who have been registered through one of these meetings receive information about the various options available for the upcoming semester(s) and information about Class Enrollment Night, where youth can enroll in Faith Formation options, Discipleship Groups, and Service projects.
