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.
Parish Religious Education (PRE) and Sacrament Classes - Our parish offers classes in religious education for public school, private school, or home schooled students in grades 4K through High School. To register your child, click here. The 2021-2022 PRE Family Handbook is available here.
Sacrament Registration for Students in Catholic Schools - Students who attend St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School or another Catholic school will receive their religious education during the school day as part of the regular curriculum. However, these students must register with the religious education office to receive First Communion and Confirmation during their sacramental years. Please 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.
Volunteers - We depend on volunteers to keep our PRE program going! If you are interested in becoming a Religious Education Catechist, Assistant Catechist, or Parent or Teen Volunteer, please register here.
