Active Parishioner Status for Catholic Schools

Updated: Oct 28, 2021

The Archdiocese of Atlanta requires all families to submit a Parish Verification form to their Catholic School to verify that the family is registered and active in the parish.

The Archdiocese defines “active parishioners” as those registered and worshipping members who contribute of their time, talent and financial resources to support the Parish by the following:

  • Regular attendance at liturgy,

  • Consistent financial support of the parish, and

  • Volunteer involvement within the parish.

Volunteer involvement within the parish does not include attendance at events, but requires active membership and frequent participation in one or more of our many ministries. Also, active status in the parish does not include volunteering in the school or other non-parish service.

While we encourage children to be active in ministry to the parish, status is dependent on the involvement of the parents.

Due to COVID-19 all families were granted "active" status for the 2020-2021 school year.

For the 2022-2023 year - and all future years - families must adhere to the requirements above to receive "active parishioner" status.
