Registering in your parish is an important first step to becoming an active member in the local Church community. Registration brings with it tangible benefits that can help a person become more fully engaged in the local church and may help immigrants in future immigration law-related matters. Please note that parish and diocesan leadership will not share the registration information with anyone, and it is completely confidential.

The benefits include:

¨ Establishes evidence of presence

¨ Provides proof of sacramental participation

¨ Demonstrates community involvement

¨ Demonstrates financial commitment

¨ Empowers the Pastor to support you when recommendations are needed

¨ Provides you with a tax receipt

¨ Allows us to plan for the parish’s needs in all aspects
