Religious Education Registration

Religious-Education-Contemporary_SMALLReligious Education registration for 2017-2018 commenced in early March and concluded on May 31. Any registrations received from this point forward will incur the $25 per child late fee.

Our Wednesday program registration is now closedDue to high enrollment and lack of teacher volunteers we can no longer accommodate additional students on Wednesdays.  If we can recruit additional Wednesday teachers we will re-open Wednesday program registration.

PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A RELIGIOUS ED TEACHER: We once again find ourselves short teachers for our Religious Education program.  You do not need any special skills or abilities, just the willingness to share your faith with the children of our parish.  We provide materials and support to help you and are especially in need for help on Wednesday afternoons.  Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, a high school or college student, or just a parishioner looking to encourage the youth of the parish in their faith, we want to talk to you.  Please contact Linda Messore at linda.messore@stjohnwellesley.org to set up a meeting to discuss options and opportunities.  Thank you in advance for considering to volunteer.

We have created a new online registration process that can be accessed from the Religious Ed page of the Parish website.

Religious Ed Grade 6 “Summer Blast” Program: June 21 – 23

Summer_Blast_Grade_6The Religious Education programs of the St. John – St. Paul Collaborative are excited to announce that last year’s  “Summer Blast” program for our incoming sixth graders was extremely successful and we will be permanently offering it through our Religious Education registration process – as you may have seen as you registered your rising 6th grader. The program is offered as an alternative to help our families manage their busy schedules.  Successful completion of “Summer Blast” will fulfill religious education requirements for the upcoming school year.

Now that the Wellesley School Committee has confirmed the last day of school (Tuesday, June 20) we have scheduled our Grade 6 Summer Blast from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, June 21, 22 and 23 at St. Paul School.

The curriculum will involve a variety of faith-based lessons taught in a fun, interactive environment and will include:

• Video Lessons on Morals and Values with interactive discussion
• Lessons surrounding the Jewish Ancestors in Faith – Moses & the Exodus
• Prayer
• Arts & Crafts
• Snack
