PREP Registration for 2023-2024

Dear Family,

Thank you for your interest in registering in St. Philip Neri Religious Education Program (PREP). At St. Philip Neri PREP, we are committed to the religious education of our children as taught by Jesus Christ. Our goal is to assist you as your child’s first teacher to nourish the faith already instilled through baptism, family life, and the Sunday Mass.

In order to register your child in SPN PREP, parents must be registered members of SPN Parish. If you have not registered as members of the parish, please contact the parish office at 610-834-1975 to do so. If you wish to change parishes, please contact the pastor at your current parish for permission.

Students in Levels 1-6 may register for classes on the day of their choice: Monday or Tuesday afternoons, 4:15-5:30 PM. Confirmation PREP is held on scheduled Sundays, October-May, 10:30-11:45 AM. Kindergarten PREP is also held on scheduled Sundays, October-March during the 9:30 AM Mass.

A PREP registration form is linked below. Please include a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate. If your child is entering St. Philip Neri PREP from another religious education program, please provide a copy of the permanent record card from their previous program. Fees for PREP are $250 for one child and $325 for two or more children. Busing from Ridge Park, Whitemarsh, and Colonial Elementary Schools is provided at $60/family.

Forms and payment may be mailed to the address above or dropped at the Church Office. Checks should be payable to Saint Philip Neri Church.

Please note: Choice of days and busing may be closed when spaces fill. Spaces cannot be reserved without a completed registration form and payment.

We are always in need of volunteers to teach and to assist in other areas. No experience is necessary; instruction and support will be provided. Parents or grandparents who volunteer in the classroom full time qualify to have PREP fees waived. If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, as a recess or snack aide, or would like more information, please contact me as soon as possible so we can be ready in September.

I thank those who have given generously of their time, talent, and resources. Parents are their children’s first teachers and we are honored to assist you in raising your children in our Catholic faith.

Your friend in Christ,

Sharon Otto

Director of Religious Education
