A Note from Religious Ed-
We are currently gearing up for the 2022-2023 school year. Please watch this page as we post important information.
We anticipate continuing to offer Religious Education classes for grades Preschool through 8 on Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the former Bishop Kelley Catholic School building with classes starting Sept. 14.
So we can plan our program for the year, please download and complete our Religious Education Registration Form and return it to the Religious Education Office. If your students are new to our program and/or if they are preparing to receive their First Holy Communion or Confirmation, we will need to see their Baptismal certificates and proof of any other Sacraments they have received.
2022-2023 Tuition (Preschool through 8th Grade):
One Child: $60
Two Children: $90
Three or more children: $120
To enroll, please download and print the Registration Form from the link below. Return your completed form, with your payment, to the Immaculate Conception Religious Education Office, 926 W. Nepessing St., Lapeer, MI 48446. (You may also drop completed registration forms and payments in the weekend collection at Mass.)
Students enrolling to prepare for First Communion/First Reconciliation and/or Confirmation MUST provide their Baptismal Certificates. In addition, students preparing for First Communion/First Reconciliation MUST have completed a First Grade Catholic Religious Education Class previously. Likewise, students enrolling to prepare for Confirmation MUST have completed a Seventh Grade Catholic Religious Educaton Class previously.
We are always in need of volunteers. Would you please consider helping us as a catechist or classroom aide? We will provide all the materials and support you need. As with any volunteer position here at Immaculate Conception Church, catechists and classroom aides must pass a criminal background check and also either complete or arrange to complete as soon as possible Protecting God's Children training. (We will be hosting a Protecting God's Children training session here on September 17 from 9 a.m.-noon. Please register at virtus.org.)
Thank you to the catechists, helpers, and parents supporting the religious education of our children. This is a very important task and responsibility. We are all here to help.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Generally, I am in the Religious Education office M-F from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
