When participating in the Religion Education Classes, please remember the following:

1. Children must participate in the weekly Eucharist (Mass) to be eligible to attend religious education. The opportunity and obligation to "keep the Lord's day holy" by participating in the Eucharist is an essential part of being Catholic.

2. Religious education classes will begin at 11:00 A.M. and conclude at 11:50 A.M. For the safety of your children, the doors to the Formation Center will be locked from 11:05 A.M. until dismissal. The children will still be able to exit by using the crash bars; but, people will not be able to enter the building without using the doorbell.

3. At dismissal time, parents are asked to wait for their children outside the building so as to reduce hallway congestion. Pre-school thru 2nd grade children will exit through the porch door. Grades 3-5 will exit by way of the side door located at the bottom of the steps. Grades 6-8 will exit the 6th avenue doors. If an older sibling is picking up your child, please ask them to wait at the appropriate doors, so teachers are able to keep track of their class. Students who are not picked up will wait in the main office rather than outside, as a safety precaution.

4. Please park in the lot or at the curb when you pick-up your children. Do not stop in the traffic lane. Be sure to cross the street at the cross-walk or at the corner of the block.

5. To help defray the cost of our religious education program, please donate $10.00 per family in your regular church envelope as a one-time annual fee.

6. If there is a cancellation of Religious Education due to inclement weather or some type of emergency, please go to, WTAJ-TV 10, WFBG AM 1290, WFGY FM 98.1

Altoona Central Catholic Schools

Uniform Exchange Program
Holy Trinity Catholic Schools Uniform exchange pro-gram must relocate and is seeking the donation of space. The space needs to be large enough to store racks and tables full of clothing and accessible for uniform ex-changes and restocking. The uniform exchange allows parents of children attending the Holy Trinity Catholic Schools to trade uniforms for larger sizes for no charge. For the past 20 years the exchange has been operating from St. Mary's Parish in Altoona. If you have such a space, please contact LuAnn Hallinan at 944-6143. Thank you.
