Faith Formation classes are held on Sundays only before Masses through out the school year. This year we offer additional option to have Sunday mornings classes grades first, second and third from 9:00 to 9:45 and evening from 5:30 to 6:15 pm for forth, fifth, six, seven, eight and ninth grades.The purpose of having Sunday classes is to give them an oportunity to attend Sunday Mass which is obligatory for all students. Please print a calendar for the complete list of study days. You may register here at the online Faith Formation registration. But you need to register by September 19 to avoid late fee. Any payment may be done online through the e- giving icon or in person when you return the paper registration form to the St. Anne’s Faith Formation Office.
