I understand that as a parent, we are the “primary educators” of our children in the ways of the faith (from the Baptismal Rite). It is the intention of the Religious Education/Faith Formation process to complement the religious education that takes place in the little church of the home. The parish provides a Religious Education Process to teach and enhance Catholic doctrine and values as well as to provide a peer faith community. Therefore, it is essential for my child/children to receive the most from the process. I also realize it is my responsibility to give support by:
- Regular Sunday Mass attendance with my child.
- Attendance at required parent gatherings.
Knowing this, I wish to enroll my child (or children) and agree to perform and satisfy the responsibilities listed in the above statement by my signature below. I further understand that if there is a financial difficulty, it is my responsibility to inform Fr. Pierre or the Religious Education Director of the situation.
† I understand that reasonable precautions will be taken to safeguard the health and safety of my child and that I will be notified as soon as possible in case of an emergency. In the event of any sickness or accident, I will not hold St. Steven’s, the Diocese of Phoenix or any program leader responsible.
†I have or will participate in the Called to Protect Training required by the Diocese of Phoenix for all those active in Ministry.
†I give permission for my child’s image, print or video to be used in parish and diocesan publications or websites.
