Summer Program 2014 Registration Information
If you have child(ren) entering Grades 6-10 (in Sept. 2014) and would like to enter the lottery process to register your children for the Summer Program 2014, please submit the registration this weekend (starting on April 25 at 5pm until April 27 at 8pm ONLY). Due to the popularity of this program, certain conditions apply to choose this option:
* Your child is presently attending religious education at St. Mary’s for at least one year.
* Your child will attend all 5 classes from 9am-3pm. Any appointments (Doctor/Dentist/etc) that conflict with the week of program need to be re-scheduled.
* Families are expected to help in some capacity (Teacher, Hall Monitor, Lunch Monitor, Activity Helper) during the week of classes. If a parents’ work schedule does not allow time-off, and you cannot get someone else (babysitter/grandparent/close family friend) to fill in for you, you would need to register your child for a Fall/Winter program.
Registrations received between 5pm on April 25, 2014 – 8pm on April 27, 2014 will be placed in the lottery. We will fill the available slots by lottery and notify you by May 8, 2014 if your child(ren) do not get into the Summer Program. If they do not get into the Summer Program, you would need to register your child(ren) for a different program starting on May 12, 2014.
In order to complete the registration process, you will be asked to submit payment. Please use your Parish Envelope/ID # <Fam ID Number> when requested on the payment screen.

Alleluia, The Lord is Risen!
The signs of new life at Easter give us that encouragement that our faith will bring us to that New Life that Jesus offers us in his Resurrection. We now have 50 days of the season of Easter ahead of us to reflect upon those words as we say “Alleluia” each day. Special thanks to the many ministry volunteers who enriched our Holy Week and Easter liturgies.
