Registration is now completed for the 2017-2018 school year. Please check back in Fall 2018 to sign up for our next class.
Please include $20.00 registration fee with your First Communion Registration Form. This will be applied for the expenses (First Communion materials, Retreat and Digital Group Photo). A baptismal certificate is required if your child was not Baptized at St Mary's . Registration deadline is November 1, 2017.
Please note you must be an active registered family in our parish for your child to receive a Sacrament at our parish. Registration with one of our parish schools does not mean that you are registered with the parish. If you are an active practicing member of another parish, a letter of permission will be required from your Pastor.
A parish registration form can be submit on during any of our Lord's Day Masses at our Welcome Desk.
An essential aspect of preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and Holy Communion is participation in the Lordís Day celebrations of Mass. Young people preparing for these Sacraments are encouraged to be a part of Visitation Kids a program exclusively for them held during the 9:30a.m. and 11:30am Mass each Lordís Day. Each child will also be given the opportunity during the year to be involved in the Presentation of the Gifts at one of the Lordís Day Masses; a schedule will be developed and shared. We will also hold parish based activities as essential elements of this preparation. - Sign up Today! - Download the Children's Ministry Registration Form

Why do this ? Does it not all happen at School:
At St Maryís Parish we are dedicated to having something for everyone. This includes ensuring something for our young people. Our Catholic Schools are special places too. The Sacraments, however, are about a faith relationship found within the community of the Church, not membership in a school. At some point in their life, students graduate from their school; they may visit, but their school will not be the place they go back to for healing in a moment of crisis, for sacramental care in a time of joy, or for direction on occasion when they are called to grow and mature in life. When they graduate school - they leave to return as a visitor. A Parish, a faith community, is a place you never graduate from, and Confirmation is a Sacrament that says "I want to be a member of a community of faith - for life - not to graduate from it - but to grow within it!"
We are doing this because we love your child, and we want to help you to let them see - they never graduate from Church, they never graduate from God - but rather they grow here and become who God wants them to be ! In fact here is what we do at Visitation Kids
