Religious Education

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the first step in your children’s 2019-2020 Faith Formation Journey! We are busy planning a faith-filled year and look forward to partnering with your family. If you have a Kindergarten through 3rd grader, or if you have a brand new student, please join us in our Open House on Saturday, September 7th, from 4:00-6:00 in the Parish Hall.  Your child will be able to meet their teacher and see their classroom.  If you still need to register, we will take care of that as well.  Classes will begin September 8th.   Please join us at the 8:30 Mass, where Fr. Tom will bless our teachers and students in the start of a new school year.  After Mass, the teachers will gather their students and take them to their classrooms.  

General Information

Religious Education Classes are held throughout the normal academic school year for Grades Kindergarten through 9th Grade Confirmation. Registration takes place during the month of August. We ask that each family pay $25.00 per child or a maximum of $50.00 per family to help cover the cost of supplies. Registration after September 1st will be $30.00 per child or a maximum of $60.00 per family.  Please add a $25.00 fee for each Confirmation student.  This fee covers the additional requirements needed to prepare for this sacrament.  Registration forms are available on the Registration Form Link to print out (see below) or they are available in the church vestibule. Fill in the required information, attach the correct fee, and either place in the collection basket, drop it by the church office, or mail to: St. Paul Catholic Church, 1900 Hwy 72 West, Athens, AL 35611

Kindergarten Religious Education Classes through 9th Grade Confirmation Classes are held each Sunday from 9:45 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. (between Sunday Masses) in the Religious Education Building.
