please take the time to stop and think of all that our Founding Fathers have done. For without them,
America would not be celebrating this INDEPENDENCE DAY. May we always be thankful to the Lord for
our many blessings.

Eucharist (Communion) or Confirmation must bring an original or a copy of their child s BAPTISMAL certificate. It s
always good practice to bring the original or a copy, even if you think you may have given it to us already, as no student
will be registered for their Sacraments if we do not have one on record. No exceptions will be made. We will not keep
your original, however, we will keep all copies given.
Please remember: If you are registering someone else s student(s) for CM Classes (i.e., niece, nephew, grandchild,
friend), you MUST have written permission from the parent along with a COMPLETED Emergency Form/Family
Agreement Form for each student. In this particular case, no student will be registered without permission or
completed forms. [For your convenience, you may print the form from our Website,
http://www.parish.stvictor.org/catechism.html. Please scroll down to CM handbook and open it. The
Emergency Form and Family Agreement Form are near the end of the handbook. Print as many as needed
for the amount of students you have. ]
A NOTE TO ALL REGISTERING FAMILIES: All emergency forms MUST be complete, as this is now considered a
Diocesan registration form. Please do NOT leave any blanks. Bring all your information (doctor numbers,
dentist numbers, current emergency contact info) with you.
PLEASE NOTE: The new U.n.I. Lord (teens and young adults) email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org .
