Parent Portal Setup

Registration for incoming first graders is done in person in the Religious Ed Office. The family must first register with the parish. Please contact the Rectory. We begin registration in late April/early May. For registration, a form must be completed and a copy of the child's baptismal certificate is required.

Re-registration usually begins in Mid April. You will receive an email at that time instructing you to access the "My Own Church Portal". Classes for grades 1 through 5 are offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from 4:00 pm to 5:15 pm. We begin October and run through early April. Classes for grade 6 meet on Monday evenings at 5:00 pm to 6:15 pm. Grade 7 meet on Monday evenings from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm. Grade 8 meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm.
