3) actively supporting the Parish community to the best of your ability; and
4) regularly using the Parish envelope or Parish Pay system with amounts determined as individual means allow.


In-parish status is reviewed annually.  This subsidy is made possible because of your weekly offertory contributions.  If you would like to automate your weekly offertory contribution, please follow the instructions given on this page: Online Giving 

** For parishioners of Churches without a school, Affiliated Catholic status will be confirmed with your home Church.  This subsidy is made possible by the Archdiocese of Denver.


Tuition Payment

St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School uses a tuition management system called FACTS Tuition Payment Management Program. Tuition is paid via an automatic withdrawal from a banking or checking account. It may be paid in one lump sum annually in July, semi-annually in July and January or monthly from July through April. Variation to these dates may be necessary for students beginning after the start of the school year. Once a student is accepted, parents may connect to the online Tuition Enrollment by clicking on To Register with FACTS on this website’s ADMISSIONS tab. There is no enrollment fee involved in the process.
