Religious Education (CCD)
Registration for the 2018-2019 is Open

We are excited to announce that Sundays will transition to a Family Catechesis format, where families come together for lessons once a month and commit to teaching the rest of the lessons at home, using the Loyola Press Finding God lesson plans available online.  Work done at home will be turned in to the Sunday Catechists.  Families that prefer the traditional weekly catechist-taught classes can sign up for the Wednesday program, which meets on Wednesdays from 5:00 PM to 6:15 PM.

April 21st was a beautiful day for all our families here at St. Joan of Arc Church & School. Our campus was complete with a Jumbo Slide, Bumper Cars, Games, Face Painting, Petting Zoo and lots of great food and activities. We would like to thank all our Sponsors for making this day possible and all the wonderful volunteers including staff, parents, our Dad’s Club, St. Joan of Arc children and Religious Education children. We are looking forward to seeing all of you next year at this very special family event. Thanks again to everyone for making this day possible.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital has communicated to us that they will no longer share with the Churches or Synagogues the names or faith affiliations of their patient population. Therefore in order to receive a pastoral visit from a Priest (anointing of the sick or confession) or Eucharistic Minister (holy communion), parishioners must call SJA Parish Office by 10:30am Monday through Friday, and request such a pastoral visitation. This same procedure applies for Trustbridge Hospice, Inc. Calls received later in the day will be responded to on the following day.
Thank you for your kind attention to this change in hospital policy
