Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find details of my payments to LREDA?
Once you've made a payment using our new system, you will be able to create an Aplos account. Log in to your Aplos account to see your payments and download a contribution statement. If you need help, email Juliet at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll be happy to help you.
How do I pay my membership dues?
Our new system no longer issues invoices. Click on the buttons above to pay your dues either using a debit or credit card, ACH payment or use PayPal.
We accept payments by check. Make the check payable to LREDA and write the name of the religious educator in the memo line. Mail the check to LREDA, 284 Hartford Ave, #1002, Bellingham, MA 02019.
How do I find support nearby?
LREDA Chapters function as separate entities with their own leadership structure, support systems, and dues structure. It is in LREDA's fifteen chapters where religious educators most often meet and support one another through the day-to-day joys and challenges of the work. Find your chapter here.
