RE at SJE is Christ-centered. Our RE program is tailored for children grades 1-8 who do not attend our parish school.
RE at SJE is structured to help deepen our children’s relationship with God by presenting the Scriptures, Church teaching, and liturgy in a way that meets them where they are in life.
Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 7:45 – 9:05 am or Monday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
Registration forms are available online, in the RE Office during RE classes, at the Hospitality Desk on the weekends, and during the week at the Parish Office.
RE registration begins in March of the preceding school year. For parishioners, the fee is $135 per child, which covers all books and supplies. There is a $25.00 non-refundable registration fee per family due at the time of registration, and half of the tuition is due on or before parent orientation. The remaining tuition balance is due by February 1st of that school year. If necessary, an individual payment plan can be set up.
Please note that “early bird” tuition rates apply to registrations received by May 8th. Regular tuition rates run from May 9th-July 23th, after which a $25 fee is incurred. So register early!
Classes are filled on a first-come basis, so please complete the following forms and submit them with your family registration fee as soon as possible: RE Registration Packet
Please note: Families who are transferring into our program from another parish should register with the parish before registering for RE. Transcripts from the previous program should be forwarded to our Office of Religious Education/Formation.
