We also have a service program called First Saturdays.  Every First Saturday of the month our teens do service projects in the local community.   First Saturdays will resume in September.

 5. Can I make payments if I can’t pay registration up front?  Answer: Yes! Instead of completing a digital registration you will need to complete a physical registration at the office.  These are available in the hanging folder outside of room 104 of the Pastoral Center.  At the top of your registration write down how you are paying at the time of registration.  Then you can make payments at a later date at your convenience so long as the registration is payed in full by May.
