    2019-20 Registration Form here.


  • Photocopies of Baptismal Certificates are required for new family registration.
  • If transferring from another parish, a letter stating of your child’s catechetical formation is preferred.
  • Classroom placement is on a first come, first serve basis, with the context of the full group in mind.
  • Tuition covers the cost of student books, Bibles and other supplies used during instruction.
  • If a child loses a book, the family must pay for a replacement.
  • All families are expected to pay tuition, and any sacramental fees that apply, in a timely manner.  However, no child will be denied religious education due to financial difficulties.  Families should contact the Direct of Religion Education in these matters.

During the summer months, we invite people to the catechetical ministry. Please pray for your call to this most important ministry. Catechists help the families of our parish pass on the basic teachings and practices of our Catholic faith and the rich traditions of prayer and worship. Call the School of Religion Office at 847-593-8938 or e-mail  Meghan Donahue .
