Religious Education for Children

Bringing up your children in the Catholic faith... things every parent should know: All Catholic children between Kindergarten and 8th grade should be enrolled in Religious Education every year - either at St. Francis Catholic School, another Catholic school, or in our Parish Religious Education (PRE) program.  Additionally, children who are home schooled must be registered through the PRE program in order to receive their sacraments at the traditional time. Attendance is required in order to be involved in any sports activities of St. Francis of Assisi Church.

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic SchoolSince 2004, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has operated St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School (SFA) as a parish school. The diocese continues to operate St. Benedict at Auburndale High School (SBA) on a campus adjacent to the SFA property. For information about St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Elementary School, call (901)388-7321. For St. Benedict at Auburndale High School, call (901)260-2840.

Sacrament Registration for Students in Catholic Schools - Students who attend St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School or another Catholic school should complete the form found here to register for sacraments. If you have any questions, please contact Betty Siano, Director of Religious Education, at (901)756-1213.
