We are working close with St. Mary’s Church in Riverside, IL. We are partnering with St. Mary’s for Faith Formation (Religious Education) School Year 2020-2021. After much discussion, we will not have Faith Formation (Religious Education classes) on site. We will transition to at home on-line learning. Our Catechist’s will be trained on-line and support the parent or designated family member. More to come.

If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to call us at 708-788-6090 or E-mail us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This has been a very challenging time. Please send back your registration form that was mailed so we can begin the at home transition. Let us know if you are unable to do electronic learning.

We pray for your children and put safety first. Our faith can get us through..

HOME RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

  • Read and Reflect on the daily and Sunday readings (Just google Catholic Mass Readings)
  • This is a good time to make sure your children know their prayers.
  • Pray the rosary.
  • Read the Gospel of Matthew during Lent.
  • Adults share their faith with the children. Gather the children together at a table, light a candle and pray before meals or after. Many stories in the bible tell us to not be afraid.
  • Let the children pray. Help them offer prayers for others and our families. Ask God and Our Mother, Mary to protect all of us.
