2024-2025 St. Ann Student Registration for Religious Education & RCIA for Children 
This form will be used to create the 2024-2025 St. Ann Student Rosters for Religious Education & RCIA for Children.  Your student information will only be shared with St. Ann Religious Education catechists and staff.  One registration form must be completed for each child.

Religious Education classes are for all children from age 3 (potty trained) through 12th grade, regardless of sacramental need. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings and will start in September 2024 and conclude in May 2025.  

PLEASE NOTE:  We will only offer ONE preschool class this year on a first-come, first-served basis. We have 15 spots available, so if you are enrolling your child in our preschool class, you are committing to bringing your child to class every week (excluding excused illness). For those who enroll after the 15 spots are taken, your child will be put on a wait list. 

RCIA for Children is for all children age 7 and above who are unbaptized or baptized in another faith. These children enter the Catholic Church through a series of liturgical rites at Mass. This process includes religious education. Unbaptized children will spend a minimum of 2 years in preparation for the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). They will attend rites and required events outside of Tuesday evenings as well. Please contact Laura Daugherty at rcia@parishofsaintann.org for more information.

I, the undersigned parent or legal guardian, voluntarily wish to give permission for and request that my child be allowed to attend and participate in Religious Education or RCIA for Children during this calendar year. I have informed my child to cooperate and conform with the rules, guidelines, and instructions given by DOF personnel or agents, or chaperones, or responsible for DOF events and activities. 

In exchange for permitting my child to participate in Religious Education and RCIA for Children, I waive and give up all claims (and the right to file a lawsuit) which I or my child (and our successors, heirs, and assigns) may have against DOF.  I release and discharge the DOF from all liability or responsibility for death, illness, personal injury, or property damage arising out of DOF activity.

In the event of an emergency and if the DOF is unable to contact me, I authorize the DOF personnel or other adult leadership of St. Ann, at my expense, to secure and consent to x-ray examination, medical, dental, or surgical diagnosis, treatment, and hospital care advised and supervised by a duly licensed physician, surgeon, or dentist. I expect to be contacted as soon as possible. I agree that if emergency medical or dental services are required for my child, the DOF will not be responsible to pay for any medical or dental expenses. 

This permission, waiver, release, and consent applies to the DOF named, including but not limited to the Diocese of Fresno Education Corporation; the Roman Catholic Bishop of Fresno (a corporate sole); the Diocese of Fresno; other Fresno Diocesan Parishes and Schools; affiliated organizations and officers; clergy; agents; and employees. 

This waiver and release form is signed in order for my child to participate in Religious Education or RCIA for Children for my child's own personal enjoyment and benefit and is done so freely with the knowledge of the risk and dangers that are or may be involved. 

I authorize any hospital which has provided treatment to the named participant pursuant to the provision of Family code section 6910 to surrender physical custody of such minor to the DOF representative upon the completion of treatment. This authorization is given pursuant to Health and Safety code section 1283. 

I, the undersigned, have read this release and understand all of its terms. I request that my child be allowed to participate in Religious Education or RCIA for Children. I execute this form voluntarily and with full knowledge of its significance. I have discussed the above with my child, and my child is aware of and understands the importance of following all rules set out for Religious Education or RCIA for Children. A copy or digital image of this form shall be as valid as the original authorization. PARENT OR GUARDIAN TYPE FULL NAME BELOW
