A message from Fr. Britto to the children of St. Paul of the Cross Parish
Welcome to St. Paul’s Office for Catechesis!
The Office for Catechesis is devoted to helping children of our parish become closer to God through becoming fully initiated into this community of Catholic faith. Our office directs and organizes the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation for the children of both the School and Catechesis program.
We also direct the religious formation for the children in our parish attending public school. Our primary goal is to provide parents with the support to raise your children in the Catholic faith and build a family life which is built upon and completely intertwined with that faith. It is an honor and a privilege to serve and support your family!
Please look at our Registration page to find out information on all the different options we have here at St. Paul’s. You will also find the tuition and fees and will be able to download a Registration Form.
And please know that my door is always open and I am happy to answer any of your questions or concerns!
Anna Mae Parkhill, M. Div.
Director of Catechesis
