We allow Catholic members of other parishes to attend our RE program and to receive preparation and the Sacraments here under the following guidelines:
You need to have permission from your Pastor for your child to receive any of the Sacraments at St. John Church. You will need to go to your DRE and/or Pastor to discuss this situation. They will need to communicate to us that you have their permission.
You will be on a waiting list to see if we have room in our classrooms. Our parishioners have first priority.
There is an out-of-parish fee for non-St. John parishioners, plus an
aditional Sacramental preparation fee.
