2019- 2020 Saint Martha P.R.E.P. Schedule and News
Registration for the 2019-2020 school year will begin on April 14, 2019. Please register your child(ren) before the end of our current year (May 6, 2019).
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be conferred on Sunday November 17, 2019 at the 12:00 Mass. By April 30th your child should have turned in the following:
1- Candidate Information Sheet (Yellow)
2- Sponsor Eligibility Form (Blue)
This form must have a parish seal and the signature of a priest/deacon.
3- Saint Project
4- Sponsor Interview Form
We will not chase you/your child for the forms. If we don't have them your child cannot be Confirmed.
When you and your child are considering a sponsor, remember they must be of age (it's on the form), and must be a practicing Catholic (ie: Attends Mass and receives the Sacraments Regularly).
REGISTER YOUR CHILD
If you have a child of school age who does not attend Catholic school, they must come to PREP classes for their religious education. If you are a member of St. Martha and you send your child elsewhere for religious education, you should think about supporting your parish and send them here. They MUST receive their sacraments at St. Martha. They may NOT receive their sacraments from any other parish if you are a member of St. Martha.
If you have a child starting Kindergarten in September why not register them for our PREP class? There is no cost for the class.
Calendar is under 'prep/ccd schedule' tab
Parents/guardians: Please make sure I have your email address on file as that will be the primary way in which we will communicate. Thank you.
It's hard to believe that we're talking about the 2020 school year already, but here we are!
There will be a meeting for parents on Sunday September 8, 2019 at 11:00 in the Parish Hall. All parents must attend. You will be given forms to sign at this meeting regarding attendance and the reception of Sacraments.
Our first day of class is September 15, 2019. Children will be sent to their rooms as we normally do. On regular PREP class days students should be brought to the chapel no later than 8:15. Too many children have been arriving late and this disrupts the class. Children arriving after 8:15 must be accompanied into the school by an adult.
There will be NO registrations on the first day and NO child will be admitted to class without being registered. In other words, if you haven't registered your child by the first day of class AND paid the registration fee (or haven't made payment arrangements), your child will return home with you and will receive his/her first absence. No one will be available to register children once PREP begins on September 15. Again, your child will not be admitted into class without being registered.
Register your child in one of three ways:
1. Print out he registration form from the website, fill it out, and bring it to the rectory with your fee any time.
2. By appointment .... call the rectory and I will return your call if I am not there.
3. Take the time to fill out the registration form that will be sent home with your child.
The PREP Program of Saint Martha Parish is designed to teach your child(ren) about the Catholic Faith and prepares them for the reception of their Sacraments: First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation. Our knowledgeable catechists volunteer their services so that your child may become more fully incorporated into the Catholic Church as an informed and practicing Catholic.
