Welcome! All children of St. Joseph’s and St. Andrew’s parish are invited (and expected) to attend weekly faith formation classes. Our vision at St. Joseph/St. Andrew is to work in partnership with families to offer the best learning/faith formation experience for your children. We believe that the first Church is the domestic Church found in each home. Parents, you are integral in the role you play in your children’s faith development, and you serve as the primary teaches and role models. We look forward to getting to know you better in our partnership of faith.
Registration and Payment Information
Children in grades one through eight who do not attend Catholic schools are expected to attend weekly religion classes either at St. Joseph’s or St. Andrew’s. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings.* At St. Joseph’s they are held at 3:30 PM (immediately after school), and at St. Andrew’s they are held at 6:00 PM. While it is preferred that students attend classes at the parish in which the family is registered, parents are free to choose the class time that best fits their schedule.
Fees, which include curriculum, textbooks, classroom supplies, and materials, are as follows: $45 for one child; $85 for two children; $120 for three children. The maximum family fee is $120. There is a $20 administrative late fee for forms received after November 1. Payment in full must accompany the registration form, or registration will not be accepted. No child will be excluded if the family cannot afford the fee, but parents must contact Marie Fleisner, Director of Religious Education to request a fee waiver. Payment is accepted by check/cash included with the registration form.
*Note: Anytime school is cancelled or called off early, CCD classes are also cancelled.
First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
Children receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (Communion) in 2nd Grade. If you have a child in grades 3–9 who has not yet received First Reconciliation/First Communion, contact Marie Fleisner, Director of Religious Education. Parents will receive additional information about the Sacramental preparation.
Confirmation is celebrated in the fall of the student’s junior year of high school.

All classes are held on Wednesday evenings at St. Joseph’s, with 9th grade meeting at 6:00 PM and 10th grade meeting at 7:30 PM.
