Dear Saint Hilary Families,
It is not too early to enroll your children for the 2014-2015 Religious Education year. 
This year, our enrollment process will be paperless, which will make us better stewards of God's creation.  We hope that this improvement will be a positive change for you too! 
This year, in addition to a great classroom learning experience for your children, your family will be able to take part in meaningful service projects with other families, participate in an outdoor Stations of the Cross experience during Lent and much more!  I am looking forward to a fantastic year with your families. 
Lisa Veto
Director of Religious Education
