Registration for Fall Classes Open Now Minimize

Register Your Children Now for the
2014-2015 Session of Religious Education

Students in classroom.Families are encouraged to register their students in Kindergarten-8th Grade now for the upcoming 2014-2015 Religious Education classes.


It is very important that new and returning families register as soon as possible to help us with our planning and also to avoid the late registration fee that will be added to the tuition cost after August 1.

Parents can find more information and download the registration form here and return the form by mail or directly at the parish Religious Education Office or Rectory. A $50 book/materials fee per child must accompany your registration.


Please note that the Archdiocese of Chicago requires children to complete two years of formation in a parochial school or religious education program (1st and 2nd grades) before they receive their first sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. Likewise, children preparing for Confirmation must also complete two years of formation (7th and 8th grades) in a Catholic school or religious education before receiving that sacrament.


Questions? Please contact Sister Colleen Nolan, OP by email or by calling 771-5959.
