Religious Education Registration 2017-18

Welcome to Religious Education Registration 2017-18!

September 6, 2017

Dear Parents,

Our 2017/2018 Religious Education Program for grades first through eleventh will be starting on Wednesday, September 27th. We look forward to working together again with you this year to continue to strengthen our youth’s faith while expanding their knowledge of our Catholic history and beliefs.

Enclosed is your registration material for the 2017/2018 Religious Education Program. Please complete the front and back side of the Registration Form along with the Photography Release Statement and return to: Attn: Laura Miller, Immaculate Conception Church, 535 8th Street SW, Pine City, MN 55063 by Wednesday, September 20th. You can also register and pay online at This year, we ask again for a $30 per child registration fee payable to Immaculate Conception Church to help cover some of the cost of books and supplies for the classrooms as well as a Christmas and year end celebration for the kids and a “thank you” dinner for the volunteer catechists. We would like to also invite all 12th grade students to join us on Wednesday nights free of charge. Please include them on registration form if plan on attending.

Msgr. Alek Suchan and I will again be leading this year’s program. We could still use additional help at the elementary and high school levels as catechists, small group leaders, subs and behind the scenes as well as high school snack families. If you can be of assistance or have questions as to where you would be able to help, please contact me, Laura Miller at your earliest convenience. Working with this program is a rewarding and fun experience as well as a great way to learn more about our faith while spending time with your children and meet other members of our church. Please come join us.

Finally, notice that we have included a post-card size calendar listing the schedule for the Elementary and High School Religious Education Programs. Please post this some where convenient for your reference. Again, note that we will NOT be having classes on early release school days.

Thank you in advance for your attention to this material and for registering your family by Wednesday, September 20th. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions or concerns about these programs, please feel free to call me at 320-629-3911 or email at

God Bless,

Laura Miller
