Religious Education Program

Religious Education – Fall 2020

Religious Education classes beginning this fall will only be virtual; for the safety and health of our students and staff.  We plan on classes beginning the last week of September.  Our Catechists are currently being instructed by the Archdiocese so as to provide an excellent virtual program for your children.  We will advise you of the dates and times of the classes when that is finalized.

There are many opportunities to be involved in the Catechetical Ministry of St. Zachary.  No experience is necessary, (training will be provided), just a willing spirit and a desire to share faith with others.

St. Zachary School students and REP students who wish to receive a sacrament, please click here.

The St. Zachary Religious Education Registration form for the 2020-21 year;  along with the Emergency Information Form are below online.

If you want to register a new student, please fill out the forms and return them by mail or email.  You may email them to rep@saintzachary.org.  Please fill in your child’s information about Birth Date, Baptism Date and church of baptism, and the school they presently attend.  Also, indicate the grade you want for class.  The tuition and fees are listed at the bottom of the form.  Please make a payment of at least half the tuition and fees when you send in the form.  You may also mail it to 567 W.
