Be Love in Action for a Child
Wanted: Catechist to assist a
Special Needs Child
Are you faith filled? Love children? Have experience working with children with special needs? Then I need YOU to volunteer as a catechist!
The Religious Education Office is looking for an adult to work with a grade 1 child, who has special needs, on Sunday mornings from 10-11:00 a.m. twice a month September 18, 2022- April 30, 2023.
Please contact Marie Kopf at 302-227-4553 or email: [email protected] if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity.
RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, began in the early church nearly 2,000 years ago as an intense period of study, prayer, and conversion that often lasted about three years. The Second Vatican Council brought the process back in the 1960s to guide adults wishing to come into full membership in the Catholic Church. The program was redesigned and the time for formation was modified to meet the needs of the inquirers.
Who is in the RCIA?
❁ Un-baptized adults
❁ Adults baptized as Catholic, but have not received
the Eucharist and Confirmation
❁ Adults baptized in most Protestant churches
❁ Adults baptized in other Christian churches not in
the Trinitarian formula and without water
Come to the Open House on September 19 in Rooms 1 & 3 in the Education Building to learn more about the process and meet the RCIA team members.
Register for Religious Ed!
Registration for the Religious Education Faith Formation Program for 2022/2023 is now underway. The registration form is linked here, please fill it out and mail or drop it off at the parish office. The Religious Education registration period extends through June 30, a $10 late fee will be applied if registering after the June 30 deadline. Please remember that all required religious education homework from the previous year must be completed before registering your child/children for next year. Note: Rising costs of materials have affected us, and fees will increase $5 to $70 for 1 child, $80 for 2 children and the family fee for three or more children in the program is capped at $90. There is an additional $30 fee for students who will be receiving First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, and a $65 fee for students enrolled in the Grade 9 Confirmation class. Please let us know if you are experiencing any financial hardship and need to have the fee waived. All information remains confidential and inability to pay never prevents a family from enrolling. **If you are enrolling a new child and he/she was not baptized at Saint Edmond Parish, please enclose a copy of his/her baptismal certificate with their registration form.**

Attention: Please be Aware of this Scam!
Please be wary of scams where people claim to be Fr. Cocco and ask for money or gift cards. They create emails that are similar to the 'official' St. Edmond email, and sometimes send texts as well. We NEVER use texts to request things and although we sometimes send emails to collect for various ministries, we NEVER ask for a credit card over the phone or online as we do not sell gift cards in the office. If gift cards are needed (as they sometimes are at Christmas time) we ask you bring them to us. Unfortunately, in our world today, there are people who continue to commit fraud and cheat good honest people who are trying to do the right thing. If there's ever a question, don't hesitate to call the office first before you buy. We're sorry that we can't stop people from doing this but want to make sure you're aware that it is happening again.
We are open Monday-Friday from
9 a.m.-3 p.m.
