Enroll in Religious Education Programs

Sunday Morning Religious Education (RE) Classes

Holy Trinity's Faith Formation and Religious Education Department provides religious education classes for children in kindergarten through high school on Sunday mornings. To enroll your child(ren) in RE classes, you must complete these four steps:

  1. Verify your family's information via the Archdiocese's portal, My Own Church (MOC).
    • When using the navigation tabs in Parishsoft/MOC, you need to select a navigation option in the blue bar below the main navigation tabs, even if there is only one. See FAQ #1, step B.
    • The mobile version of the Parishsoft/MOC site does not have the ability to register for classes. However, there is the option to view the "Full Site" from a mobile device. You will just need to pan and zoom a lot. There is a "Full Site" button at the bottom of the mobile site's pages.
  2. Register your child(ren) for RE class in My Own Church. (Note: this does not complete your enrollment).
    • When using the navigation tabs in Parishsoft/MOC, you need to select a navigation option in the blue bar below the main navigation tabs, even if there is only one. See FAQ #8, step B.
    • The mobile version of the Parishsoft/MOC site does not have the ability to register for classes. However, there is the option to view the "Full Site" from a mobile device. You will just need to pan and zoom a lot. There is a "Full Site" button at the bottom of the mobile site's pages.
  3. Complete the supplemental information for each child, noting which areas you will provide volunteer assistance during year.

Generally, children celebrate their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the second grade. Click here to read about the requirements to celebrate these Sacraments.

To enroll your child(ren) in sacramental prep, you must complete these three steps:

  1. Register your child(ren) for sacramental preparation in My Own Church. (Note: this does not complete your enrollment).

There is no fee for preparation for these Sacraments.

Sacramental Preparation for Youth Confirmation

Sacramental preparation for youth Confirmation is a two-year process. Generally, youth begin the Confirmation preparation program in 7th grade, and they are confirmed in the spring of their 8th grade year. Read more about youth Confirmation preparation.

Registration for Confirmation preparation is required for students who are interested in being confirmed at Holy Trinity in Spring 2021. Please note:

  • If an 8th grade student attends Holy Trinity School or another Catholic school, please register for Confirmation preparation. Complete all three steps listed below.

  • If an 8th grade student attends a public school or a non-Catholic private school, please register for religious education at Holy Trinity and Confirmation preparation.

  • Attendance at a Catholic school or registration for religious education does not mean your student is automatically registered for Confirmation preparation.

  1. Register your child for sacramental preparation in ParishSoft.
  2. Complete the enrollment form for each child. This form is required in order to collect additional information not provided in the ParishSoft account.
