Cardinal Cupich has canceled, suspended, or postponed all church events through the end of May. This means that Religious Education classes have been canceled, and First Communion and Confirmation have been postponed. Parents should review the last three chapters of student textbooks with their children, as it is unlikely that we will make up our last three scheduled classes for the academic year. Additional resources are available at www.christourlife.com/family.
The Religious Education Office will reach out to affected families as soon as events are rescheduled.Please take this opportunity to strengthen your family’s prayer life. There are many resources online for at-home prayer and worship. If you need help locating these resources, e-mail the R.E. Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please stay healthy and safe.
St. Agnes/St. Kieran Religious Education Program for Catholic Students attending Public Grade Schools
The St. Agnes/St. Kieran Religious Education Program meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., September to April, at St. Agnes School. Tuition is $100.00 per student per year. There is a $25.00 Sacramental Fee per family, for those families with one or more children receiving First Communion or Confirmation.
Faith formation is a life-long process, and
studying for the Sacraments is gradual and on-going. The Archdiocese of Chicago requires that
Catholic children attending public schools be enrolled in formal Catholic
Religious Education classes for eight consecutive years, from grades 1 thru 8,
and must show regular consistent attendance at classes. Therefore, students leaving the program after
their First Communion year will not be readmitted to the program for
Confirmation Preparation, unless they are transferring from another Catholic Religious
