    • Parish Census Forms

      Families can drop off their parish census forms at the Rectory Office, mail it in or drop it in the collection basket in a sealed envelope marked census. Forms are available in the back of the of the church. Families can also go online to enter information. The online form is in English only. The form allows up to 5 family members to be entered along with the head of the household and spouse. Please fill out and return as soon as possible if you have not already. The reason for this census is to update both parish databases for our own purposes for accuracy in parish mailings and alumni information.
