Looking for Volunteers
In order to provide lots of fun, hands-on activities to our students, we are in need of parent volunteers. Duties will include helping with set-up and assisting children in activities. A tuition discount is offered for volunteering. Additionally, we will record your volunteer hours in our parishioner files as a gift of time and talent to the Church of the Nativity. If interested, please contact the Faith Formation Coordinator, Amanda Telles at [email protected]
Tuition is $130 for the first child for the entire year. There is a 20% discount off tuition for each additional sibling. Tuition for children receiving First Communion is $225, which covers additional materials and photography for the First Communion Mass.
Tuition helps cover the cost of curriculum, supplies, activities, and related expenses. All materials needed for the classes are provided. Full payment is necessary for enrollment. However, no child will be turned away for financial reasons. Parents willing to volunteer in the classroom are eligible for discounted tuition.
All parishioners are eligible to participate. If you are unsure about your status as a parishioner, please inquire at the church office prior to registration by emailing Lourdes Barton at [email protected] or by calling 858-756-1911.
The deadline for early registration was Wednesday, September 1. Late sign-ups are allowed. Since we are preparing individual supplies and material for each child, please contact the Faith Formation coordinator before the first in-person class to confirm your child's spot in the class.
