Catechism Registration Grades 2 – 9

Before you register your child:

  • For the 2017-18 catechism year, the parish will be using the  Diocesan Catechetical program, "Be My Disciples" for Grades 2-8. Grade 9 students will prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation during their catechetical year using the Decision Point, a video based program in the fall and the Be My Disciples Confirmation program after Christmas.
  • To help cover the costs associated with ordering catechetical program materials and supplies, there will be a registration fee of $15 per child or $30 per family. Registration may be completed by placing an envelope marked "catechism", with your name on it,  in the collection basket at the weekend Masses. Please make any cheques payable to St. Pius X Parish.
  • The catechism program requires many volunteers to make it successful. Family members are asked to consider where you may be able to serve (see the form below for suggestions). Even if you cannot serve every week, we do need volunteers who can serve every second/third week, who can serve as spares or  make phone calls occasionally.
  • Please note that all volunteers (Teachers, Teacher's Aides, Monitors, etc.) must be screened in accordance with the Diocesan Screening Policy, see "Strengthening the Caring Community" before serving
  • Catechism classes will begin in late September 2017 and run until later April 2018. You will be contacted via email or by a parish volunteer with details.
  • Please note that we will make every effort to accommodate your preferred day for class. Again this year there will be three options for catechism class times (for most grades): Early Sunday mornings in the Church basement from 9:30-10:25am, Later Sunday classes in the Church basement from 11:40am -12:40pm for Grades 2-8, and Monday evenings at Stonepark Intermediate school from 6:30-7:30pm for Grades 2-8. Some Grades may not be scheduled at each time, depending on numbers and availability of volunteers. There may also be home groups for some grades. Please indicate if you have a preference for Early Sunday, Later Sunday or Monday evening classes, or if you prefer to teach your child at home (Home Tutor) using the Be My Disciples materials.
  • The Grade 9 Confirmation program will begin in mid-September after a parent's meeting on September 10th at 6:00pm in the MacKenzie Room to reviews plans for preparation and to choose a time for the twelve two-hour prep sessions.
