Wednesday Night Religious Education (WNRE) is for grades K-8. It begins with Mass at 6 pm. While Wednesday Mass is not required, we do hope that you can take advantage of this. Life is very busy and we hope that this will give families a chance to slow down and at least spend some time in prayer outside of Sunday Mass. Dinner is served to all WNRE families in the Parish Life Center immediately after Mass. After dinner, classes break out to their respective rooms with their teachers. The classroom portion begins at 7pm and ends at 8pm. We hope that parents can be as involved as possible this night and we highly encourage you to consider volunteering on a regular basis to assist with dinner and/or in the classroom. We do ask that you volunteer at least once a semester.
All students planning to be Confirmed in the spring are expected to attend class on Wednesday nights, even if they attend St. Michael Catholic School.
Fees: $40 for 1 student; $70 for 2 students; $90 for 3 or more students. Fees are due by October 4, 2023. Registration is online and can be accessed through the link below. Fees can also be paid online through Our Sunday Visitor. If you would prefer to pay by check or cash, pelase place your fee in a marked envelope in the collection basket at Mass or mail to the Parish Office at 519 Jefferson Blvd., Greenfield, IN 46141. No child is ever denied religious education because of an inability to pay fees. Please contact Fr. Aaron or Jennifer Beyer if these fees are a hardship or special arrangements need to be made. No additional fees are charged for the sacraments.
