Why is it so important that we register in a parish?
Isn't it good enough that we go to Mass?
Registration is the official way we join a parish community. Many people think that because they attend a particular parish they automatically belong. At times, young adults who have moved away for years think they are still signed up under their parents. But membership requires signing up & formally enrolling yourself in a parish. Your registration affects the parish in many ways. Census numbers can determine how many priests are assigned to a church, what benefits and obligations the community has to the diocese, and how Masses, Confessions, and devotions are planned and scheduled.
Registration shows you belong. It is also necessary for certain benefits, like scheduling sacraments, obtaining sponsor certificates, and getting donation statements for taxes. Registering in your parish is a statement of faith and confidence in the life and work of your parish.
*Please note, occasionally a letter of reference, recommendation, or goods standing such as to become a godparent, sponsor, or enroll in school, may be needed and the Parish Office will not be able to provide you such a letter if we have no recorded of you using your envelopes.*
