This year, the SPD will have an individual fee of $600. If you are coming alone, please select the Individual Registration Rate upon registering.
If you are coming as part of a parish group of 3 or more persons, the Diocese of New Westminster will contribute a bursary of $300 to each individual of the group to be used towards the registration fee. This means that you have to select the Group Rate when registering.
The program is all-inclusive, which means that all of the following is included:
Registrants can choose to pay their fees either by Paypal, Cheque or Credit Card (for this option, please also select PayPal. No PayPal account is necessary).
Alternatively, if your parish is paying for you and wishes to remit to the Diocese your individual or group registration fees, your parish must indicate on their monthly remittance form:
If you are a Deacon and part of the Continuing Education Deacon's Fund and wish to use your ConEd Fund to pay for your registration fee, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you plan to do so, explicitly pointing out the amount you are transferring from your ConEd Fund towards your SPD registration.
IMPORTANT: If your parish is remitting your registration fees directly to the Diocese OR if you are a Deacon using your ConEd Fund, please select the payment option "Cheque" and send us a quick e-mail to email@example.com letting us know. You are still responsible for registering yourself, even if you are not paying your fees directly.
