WHY PARISH REGISTRATION IS IMPORTANT
Parish registration gives a sense of belonging, especially during the times of pandemic. Here are some reasons why parish registration is important:
- Providing your contact information is important so that parishes can provide you timely updates on the happenings in Church via email, direct mail, phone or robocalls. Once you are registered, please notify the parish office of any changes in address or phone number.
- Registration enables the pastor and staff to get to know you better, to welcome you and to minister to you.
- With your active participation in Church, the pastor can provide a Pastoral Reference Letter, to attest to the faithful practice of your Faith – either for employment, volunteer work outside of Church, school or legal requirement.
- Registered active members are eligible for sponsor/godparent validation.
- Census numbers may determine how many priests are assigned to a parish and how many Masses and enrichment programs are planned and scheduled.
Note: For the youth in our parish who are 18 years of age, who live with their parents, or live on their own, and are still registered under their parent’s name, they must register in their own name.
