Catechism Registration Grades 2 – 9

Before you register your child:

  • For the 2019-20 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 $10 per child or $20 per family (until September 1, 2020 and $15/$30 after that date). 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 invited 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, providing a Criminal Record Check before serving.
  • Catechism classes will begin in late September 2019 and run until later April 2020. 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 11:30am -12:30pm 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.
