St. Agnes/St. Kieran Religious Education Program for Catholic Students attending Public Grade Schools 

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 Education Program.   

The St. Agnes/St. Kieran Religious Education Office is located at St. Agnes Church, 1501 Chicago Road, Chicago Heights, Illinois, 60411.  For additional information, please call Mrs. Teri Klopp, Coordinator of Religious Education, at 708/754-0713, or send an e-mail to:
