All book fees must be paid in full at the time of registration. All tuition and fees must be paid in full by September 24, 2024. Please note that all fees and expenses paid are non-refundable!!!  We will accept checks (payable to St. Alfred Parish), cash or credit cards (4% processing fee on all credit card transactions).

If you are registering someone new to the program, you must come with their birth certificate and baptismal certificate. We will take a photocopy of the certificates and return the originals to you. Children are eligible to begin Religious Formation if they are entering first grade in the Fall of 2024.

If your child made their First Communion this year, please don’t think that they have a vacation from Religious Education until it’s time for Confirmation preparation. If your child does not receive instruction in grades 3-6, they will have to complete make-up year(s) before they can start preparing for Confirmation in grade 7. This could put them behind several years. Register your children and allow them to continue growing in their faith with their peers!

If you have any questions, please call the Director of Religious Education, Kathy Operhall, at 313-291-6464, x14.
