Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Blessings to each and every one of you! For those of you who may not know, I am Sister Annette Lucero, O.P., the Youth Formation Director for the 2020-2021 year of Religious Education here at Risen Savior Catholic Church. Due to the ongoing pandemic, our registration process was delayed this year from previous years.  It is now time to register teens for faith formation; please read all documents carefully and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Our registration process will take place entirely on-line.  Classes will begin the week of October 4th, so please register before then so that we can obtain an Access Code for your child to use. Following are the instructions for filling out the form and information for Middle School (Grades 6th, 7th, and 8th), Learners (pre-Confirmation), and Disciples in Training (Confirmation). Please make sure that all of the information is accurate. Registrations will not be accepted if they are incomplete and do not have the appropriate fees.

This year we will begin with a virtual platform.  We pray this pandemic will cease, or at least decrease to the point that we can once again gather together.  Because we follow the Archdiocese of Santa Fe’s directives, we will make necessary changes to the program as Archbishop Wester decrees.  We will stay in contact with you as changes occur.

The health and safety of all those connected to our program is of utmost importance.  We must do our due diligence when we gather, even virtually.  Because we will be using on-line programs, parents and children will be required to sign a safe internet permission slip. Please speak to your children about internet safety.  Our catechists will also be required to complete a similar form.

Speaking of catechists, we are fortunate to have wonderful volunteers to instruct our classes.  They give of their time and talent to bring the Word of God to your children.  Our catechists have jobs and families, and we appreciate their dedication to our children and parish.  Many of our catechists have been teaching for many years.

The Archdiocese of Santa Fe began a safety program called Circle of Grace.  In the past, our catechists taught this in class. This year, the program will be included in the first virtual lesson plan.   Parents/Guardians are asked to complete the lesson with their child(ren).

Lesson plans will be uploaded on a weekly basis beginning on ,Sunday and your child will have one week to complete their work.  I understand every family does not necessarily have access to multiple computers at home.  If this poses an issue for your family, please contact me as soon as possible so that we may find other avenues for completion.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here in the parish office at (505)821-1571 ext. 108 or by email at
