August 2015

Dear Parents,

A new school year fast approaches and we will be starting classes on Sunday September 20, 2015. ALL STUDENTS must be registered before the first day of class. You can do that very easily online at our parish website. The other option is to fill out the enclosed registration form and return it along with your payment to the Parish office before September 20th. Each child must have their own separate form.   Please make sure that you include a clearly written  email address and telephone numbers  so that we are able to communicate effectively  throughout the year. On Sunday August 30,September 6 and September 13, we will have registration after the lOam and 12pm Masses, downstairs in Mgsr. Nagle Hall.

Classes begin at 8:30am and conclude at 9:45am.  Please make it a priority to be on time.

All children who are joining our Religious Education Program for the first time must submit proof of Baptism and First Communion if applicable. Simply call the church where your child was baptized and ask them to either:

1) send you the information and then you must deliver it to St. John’s parish office     OR

2) have the church fax the information to St. John’s Fax#  203-359-2660

DEADLINE  for obtaining this information is December 6th.  After this date, your child will NOT receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist or Confirmation in the current 2015-2016 school year. Any questions, please call the parish office at 203-324-1553 x2l: or email religioused@stjohnsstamford.com.
