Religious Education: Grades Pre-5
As part of the Baptismal Rite, parents promise God to raise their child in our Catholic faith. Consistent Mass attendance and class attendance are important pieces of this promise. We strive to nurture each child’s Catholic faith along with you and so we welcome you as we begin registration for Religious Education classes for the 2016-2017 school year.
As a reminder, two years of Religious Education classes are required prior to First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation according to our Diocesan and Parish guidelines. If you are new to our parish, please register with the parish office first by calling 630-665-2250 or stopping by that office at 310 S. Wheaton Avenue. We look forward to working together with you as we strive to instill a love for our Lord and His Church in the hearts of our children. May God bless your family and shower you with His abundant grace.
Adults who choose to volunteer on a weekly basis as a CATECHIST or SHEPHERD will receive a credit of $160 towards Religious Education tuition or St. Michael School tuition (where applicable). Adults who choose to volunteer on a weekly basis as an AIDE will receive an $80 tuition credit
