RELIGIOUS EDUCATION REGISTRATION
To All our Religious Education & Confirmation Families,
We have been praying that all of our parents and students will have an abundance of patience as they experience these first days of their school year and online learning. It continues to be a difficult time for all of us, but we can find our hope and strength in our Lord Jesus Christ!
With the new school year comes a new year for the Religious Education and Confirmation Programs here at St. Cyprian. At least for the near future, all of our Religious Education and Confirmation Classes will be done online. We anticipate that the programs will begin during the second week of October. The Programs will consist of both synchronous and asynchronous learning.
Synchronous Learning is learning that will happen online with a catechist/facilitator with everyone in the class together at the same time. Asynchronous Learning is learning that happens online and at home, with resources that you and your child can use at a time that fits into your schedule. Especially during this year, we are called to remember that parents are the primary educators of the faith for their children, and we are here to assist and journey with you.
If that paragraph sounds daunting, don't panic! We recognize that both parents and children are under a lot of stress already with all that is being asked by schools and distance learning. We will work hard to make this as easy and enjoyable as possible. We pray that your entire family will grow in how your faith is shared in your home and in your neighborhoods.
Attached are the Religious Education Registration Packet, the Confirmation Registration Packet and a Payment Form. Registration this year will be done entirely on paper. If you are unable to print these forms at home, you can call the Office of Religious Ed at (562) 420-6885 and ask that we mail one to you. You may also pick up a packet at the Parish Office but please call ahead and let us know that you are coming. Please return the registration paperwork as soon as possible. Please note that the Parish Office remains closed to the public at this time, but the staff continues to be in the office to answer your questions by phone and email (Religious Education Office (562) 420-6885, Parish Office (562) 421-9487, email@example.com).
Thank you so much for your interest in participating in the Confirmation Program here at St. Cyprian.
