If they are not in by March 10th, your spot will be released to participants on our waiting list.
- Send your Medical Release Form to your doctor to be completed ASAP (don’t forget that this takes time). If you haven't had a TB test in the past two years prior to the start of Encounter (7/9/2015 or more recent), know that you will have to make an appointment with your doctor or a clinic to be tested for TB in order to complete the medical form. Your Medical Release Form and final payment of $325** (cash or check to “St. Rose of Lima”) must be turned in to Molly or the Parish Office by Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
Important Information to Consider
Finger Printing: *Finger Printing Permission & Release form does not mean you will be finger printed at Encounter. Some of our worksites require all volunteers to complete finger printing on the first day. You may still participate at Encounter if you decide not to give permission to be finger printed; however, your work site placement options will be limited to sites that do not require fingerprinting.
- Cost: ** $425 is the early-bird cost for any youth/young adult/adult who turns in their physically signed registration paperwork to St. Rose by March 10th. If you turn in your physically signed registration paperwork after 3/10, you will have to pay the full registration cost of $475. Late registration fee (registration turned in after 5/22) is $525. To guarantee the early-bird cost of $425, make sure to turn in your signed Registration Form and Finger Printing Permission and Release form by March 10th!
Scholarship Aid Request: If you are in need of financial assistance (financial aid or a payment plan), please download, complete this form, and email or send to Molly at the Parish Office as soon as possible. Scholarship Aid Request Form
