Parents MUST attend 5 Parent Faith Formation classes. The PFF classes meet every week at the chapel while students are in their classrooms. 
Parents must also serve FIVE service hours. We are a non-profit organization, and our staff are all volunteers--including the catechists. Thus, we are always in need of an extra pair of hands. We need help directing traffic, doing simple office tasks, etc. When you'd like to serve your service hours, please come into the office, or contact Connie.
