Elementary Faith Formation (Grades 1-5 ONLY).

Important Information

The registration deadline for the 2021-2022 academic year was August 13, 2021 for weekly, in-person catechesis.  Registrations received between August 14, 2021 and September 27, 2021 will automatically be enrolled in at-home instruction, with the exception of Confirmation Preparation which is CLOSED for the academic year. Registrations will not be processed after September 27, 2021. Once a class reaches capacity, we will redirect students to their next available choice or remote instruction.

Note: In-person formation is filled on a first come, first served basis. If your selected day is not available, your child(ren) will be enrolled in your second or third choice. If in-person formation is no longer available for the grade(s) you have selected, your will automatically be enrolled in at-home formation if it is available for the selected grade-level.

If you are not a registered parishioner of St. Pius X and wish to participate in the program, you must obtain written permission from the pastor at your parish of registration in order to join us for the coming year. All new registrations must include a copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate and record of any other Sacraments they have received.

We no longer allow early dismissal from Elementary Faith Formation.

If a short-term conflict arises (e.g., illness, doctor’s appointments, or activities lasting <8 weeks) parents may request that the student complete their lessons at-home for that time. Because of the limited space in the program, we ask that you kindly consider at-home formation if your child is unable to fully commit to the one hour in-class program each week.

Please read the full Elementary Faith Formation Policies below BEFORE completing your registration for 2021-2022 Elementary Faith Formation and see below for the 2021-2022 calendar.
